Scores Of Ghanaians Continue To Visit Tomb Of Late President Mills
Scores of Ghanaians continue to take time off to visit the tomb of late President Mills at Asomdwee Park.
Radio Ghana's Rebecca Ekpe who visited the Park says some of the numerous visitors came with their children.
Her observation, based on views sampled at the park indicate that late President Mills tomb is likely to attract a lot of tourists.
Professor Mills earned the title "asomdwehene", or man of peace for his humility and many say the late Presidents' true legacy is his peaceful persona and his commitment to upholding human rights.
Meanwhile, the Funeral Planning Committee (FPC) says it has made amendments to its original schedule on public access to the Asomdwee Park due to the overwhelming resolve by the general public to pay their last respects and drop flowers at the final resting place of the mortal remains of His Excellency Professor John Evans Atta Mills.
A statement signed by Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Deputy Minister of Information and member of the FPC, said the Asomdwee Park will now be opened till the evening of Sunday, 19th August, 2012 after which it will be closed to the public for further works to be carried out on the site.
The statement explained that the additional works on the Asomdwee Park will now commence on the 20th of August, 2012 after which it will be opened to the public again.
The time for public access remains 8:00am to 5:00pm daily.
All vehicles are to be parked at the Independence Square.
