President J.E.A Mills (21st July 1944 - 24 July 2012)

Tribute To HE J.E.A. Mills, President of the Republic of Ghana

By Honourable Saka

"It is with a heavy heart... that we announce the sudden and untimely death of the president of the Republic of Ghana," a statement released by the president's office.

Mr President,

It was several weeks ago when you returned from the United States for medical check-up.

For those of us who love our country, we welcome you home and thanked the Lord for the life of our beloved president. We loved you and prayed for you, hoping that you would live to fulfil your vision for Ghana. Little did we know that you would leave us at this critical moment.

Your term of office saw Ghanaians on many occasions, completely united in glory on the international stage. During President Obama’s visit to Ghana, the whole world praised Ghana as a model of peace for Africa.

Also, during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Ghana under your leadership made the whole of Africa proud. Ghana has also been a shining example economically when in 2011, under your leadership; our beloved country became the fastest growing economy. Even though we’re not there yet, we still believe that someday, we will be the shining star of Africa.

Suddenly, you are no more with us.

Mr President, our hearts are troubled and our eyes are filled with tears.

We still remember when you turned on the tap two years ago, for the flow of oil production in Ghana. It was a moment of joy, peace and harmony and hope.

That day will never be forgotten just as you will never be forgotten.

It is very sad that you could not live to witness how this resource would be managed to impact upon the lives of the people of Ghana and Africans at large.

Three days ago, you celebrated your 68th birthday in glory. Sadly, you left us just a few days later.

You are in our hearts, our minds, and in our thoughts. We pray for the people of Ghana in this troubled times.

We will meet again one day. Once we're together again it will be a celebration of love.

Even as you leave us in this state of dismay, sorrows, tears and sadness.

We pray that your soul will find rest in the bosom of the Lord. We also pray that you will tell our ancestors to send us all the guidance and the blessings we need to fulfil the destiny of mother Ghana.

Rest in peace Mr President

May God Almighty grant you eternal rest. And may He grant your family the fortitude to bear the loss.

Most importantly, may your death, create the biggest opportunity for the nation Ghana to unite and work together for our common destiny.

Long live Ghana, my beloved country!!

Long live Africa!!
