|Audio Attachment:Listen to Samuel Kofi Atta Mills|
For the first time since his father’s demise and one year commemoration, son of the late President John Evans Atta Mills has decided to reveal the circumstances that led to his father’s death.
Samuel Kofi Atta Mills, speaking in an interview with Radio Gold, categorically emphasized that his father’s death did not make ‘sense’ to him when he was told minutes after holding deliberations with him (Mills) about his prospects in life, that he (Mills) had passed on to eternal glory.
Recounting circumstances preceding his father’s departure from the physical world, Samuel Kofi Atta Mills said a few weeks before his father passed away, “he wasn’t feeling a bit too well; so, as a normal person, you would want to take some time out and just relax and rest…,” so, they used to engage in regular exercises to keep fit.
On the late President’s birthday, he (Kofi Mills), for some strange reasons, decided to hang out with his father at the Osu Castle. During this time, his father had not shown any signs of dying and to him; he never thought Tuesday, July 24, 2012 would mark the demise of the late President.
“I could never have thought that Tuesday would ever come…Tuesday morning, I woke up very early because I thought maybe we would go for the walk. So, I went upstairs and he said I’m just going to relax today. The doctors are going to come around, so, I just want to relax today; take it easy…”
He later decided to leave the Castle to attend to a different assignment.
Kofi Mills further disclosed that before he left the Castle, he thought the late President Mills was preparing to travel abroad “because initially I (Kofi Mills) thought he was supposed to travel to some place. When I was leaving, they were getting the convoy ready to go” and then he “received a phone call from a very close person to him (the late President) and they said he was gone.”
His father’s death “didn’t make sense. It didn’t really make sense to me…I didn’t know whether to cry or whether to get angry or whether to sleep and wake up and pretend everything was a dream,” Kofi Mills reminisced.
However, he commended the Planning Committee, organizers of the one year anniversary of the late President John Evans Atta Mills, for working assiduously to ensure that the late President rests in perfect peace.
