Why Would You Put Up A Statue Of Someone Without Their Name On It? – Netizens Quiz Nana Addo And Koku Anyidoho


A senior lecturer at the University of Ghana, Prof. Ransford Gyampo, has joined a throng of Ghanaians calling for the right thing to be done about the late Prof.
Mills’ newly erected bust.

On Sunday, July 24, H.E Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, together with other dignitaries including former President John Dramani Mahama visited the late Prof. Mills’ graveyard, Asomdwe Park, to commemorate his 10th anniversary.

At the event, the President commissioned the renovated grave together with a monumental statue in honor of the late President.

However, the bust has stirred controversy on social media especially since the late President’s was omitted on the statue.

Anyway Prof. Gyampo took to Facebook to express his displeasure about the blunder.

“The statue is nice, very nice, but why is it littered with names of those who aren’t him? Why won’t we make it easier for posterity to know who this man is by indicating his name?” he stated.

“This is a monumental mistake and a serious omission that must be rectified.” he added.

Prof Gyampo has once again called on prominent citizens to voice out about the opinion about the issue surrounding Prof. Mills’ 10th-anniversary observation.

“Elders in Ghana must also step in to resolve the very unnecessary feud and disagreements between the family of Prof Mills and those leading the crusade to immortalize the man who stood for peace.

“We don’t always have to fight and Elders and Opinion Leaders must not always mind their business. They must help solve some of these issues that brew unnecessary tension,” he emphasized.
