The President of the Western Regional House of Chiefs, Awulae Attibrukusu, has commended Ghanaians for the exemplary sign of unity shown during the last few days of the nation’s bereavement.
He said these were convincing enough that no matter the political, ethnic, tribal, economic and other forms of differences, Ghanaians were one.
Speaking to Kyzz News following the demise of President John Evans Atta Mills last Tuesday, the National House of Chiefs President also noted that the chiefs in the Western Region would forever remember the late President.
“We, the chiefs, will greatly be fond of the late President, particularly how he always welcomed us to the seat of government and his listening ears was always there for us,” he noted.
He revealed that plans were on paper that the chiefs were to meet the late President before he passed on, which could have brought lots of benefits to the Western Region.
He described the death of the President as saddening and shocking, as it took him hours and several checks to believe the President had passed on.
“Initially, when I heard the news, it was like a dream to me, but upon several calls, it was confirmed that Prof. Mills was dead,” Awulae Attibrukusu said.
