Atta-Mills’ Family Considering Legal Actions Against Koku Anyidoho Over His Bust



The late former President of Ghana John Evans Atta-Mills’ family is considering legal actions against the Atta Mills Institute being run by Koku Anyidoho.

The family of the late President is alleging that Mr Anyidoho has taken the advantage of the name of the former President to run his institute without approval from the family.

Dr Cadman Mills, the leader of the family said the family is not happy with the activities of the Atta Mills Institute.

He made this known while speaking at a public lecture marking the 10th anniversary of the death of Prof. Mills.

“The so-called Atta Mills Institute is unauthorised, it is also unsanctioned, unappreciated and it is most unwelcome, Dr Cadman Mills said at the J.E.A. Mills Commemorative lecture in Accra on Tuesdayevening (July 26, 2022).

The late President’s family last week expressed anger at Mr Anyidoho and the Coastal Development Authority accusing them of desecrating the tomb of the former President.

Mr Samuel Atta Mills, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Komenda-Edina-Eguafo Abirem and brother of the late President Atta Mills led the accusations.

“A group calling itself Atta Mills Institute that the family doesn’t even recognise, and Coastal Development Authority, have gone to break the grave of President John Evans Atta Mills”.

“They have removed the tomb, and they claim that they are rebuilding it,” the late President’s brother told the Parliamentary press corps.

Why will you go and touch the grave without informing us? Who has the body now? Coastal Development Authority under whose authority did you do this? Why do you always make us go through grief every time?” he asked.

“And you allow that Koku Anyidoho, that buffoon working with Atta Mills Institute, so-called, to go and touch this grave without informing our family head. This is a former president. Why will the government allow this to happen?”, he added.
