Ghanaians have descended on President Nana Akufo-Addo after he unveiled the monument of former President Evans Atta-Mills It was observed that the statue had the name of the sitting president as well as Samuel Koku Anyidoho but not that of the former president himself The Minority Caucus in Parliament has also joined calls for the inscriptions to be altered.

His Excellency, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, unveiled the statue of late former president John Evans Fiifi Atta-Mills during the 10th Anniversary of the death of Atta-Mills. Professor John Evans Atta-Mills was the first sitting Ghanaian head of state to die in office and was subsequently laid to rest at the Asomdwee Park.

After the ceremony that was held on July 24, 2022, photos of the statue made of the late former president surfaced on social media and have since been causing some controversy.

It has been observed that the statue bore the names of two individuals but none of those was the former president for whom the sculpture was actually built.

Ghanaians have since been bashing the sitting president for unveiling the art that bore only his name and that of Samuel Koku Anyidoho.

Meanwhile, the Minority Caucus in Parliament has ordered President Akufo-Addo to immediately go back to effect changes to the inscriptions written on the bust of the late Former President of the Republic of Ghana Prof, John Evans Atta-Mills.
