Former General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, has criticized the party’s flagbearer, former President John Mahama, for failing to honor the late President John Evans Atta Mills. Anyidoho pointed out that during Mahama’s tenure, no national or regional monuments were named after Mills.

In an X post dated June 18, 2024, Anyidoho highlighted that Alfred Oko Vanderpuije, then Mayor of Accra and now Member of Parliament for Ablekuma South, named a road in Accra after Mills, but Mahama did not take similar steps. “As we continue to speak to facts, do you know that apart from Oko Vanderpuije using his position as Mayor of Accra to name the High Street after President Atta-Mills, JM on his own did NOT name anything after his late boss?” Anyidoho questioned.

Additionally, Anyidoho accused Mahama of neglecting Asomdwee Park, where Mills was buried. The park was recently refurbished through a collaboration between Anyidoho’s Atta Mills Institute and the Coastal Development Authority (CoDA).

In August 2012, a month after Mills’ death, the Accra Metropolitan Assembly, led by Vanderpuije, resolved to rename the Accra High Street to “Evans Atta Mills Street” and the new Millennium City School at the Salvation Army Cluster of Schools to “President Evans Atta Mills Educational Center of Excellence.” Vanderpuije announced these changes would be effective before Mills’ burial on August 10, 2012.
