Mahama never complimented Atta-Mills – Koku Anyidoho alleges

Founder of Atta Mills Institute, Koku Anyidoho says former President John Mahama never heaped praises on late President John Evans Atta Mills when he was his vice during his presidency.

He made this revelation in a series of tweets on Friday, March 5 2021 while praising Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for always paying compliments to his boss, President Akufo-Addo.

Koku, who was the spokesperson for late President Atta Mills stated he never saw such humbleness and compliments paid to the late President.

Prior to this tweet, Mr Anyidoho had called on NDC Chairman, Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo to “stamp” his authority on the party and bring order since Mr Mahama is no longer the leader of the party.

“As things stand now, & per the constitution of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, National Chairman, is also the current Leader of the Party till a new Flagbearer emerges. Ofosu-Ampofo has the full backing of the NDC and must stamp his AUTHORITY & clamp down on gross indiscipline,” he wrote.

I don’t like Atta-Mills – Koku Anyidoho

The former deputy General-Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Koku Anyidoho has shed some light on his relationship with former President John Mahama which, according to him, was mostly borne out of duty.

Mr Anyidoho was however known to have quite the warm relationship with John Mahama’s predecessor, John Evans Atta Mills, which stretched beyond compulsion, according to the NDC Deputy General-Secretary.

“I will never regret working for him… President Mills, I salute you in your grave. Nobody will take that away from me,” he declared.

When prodded with a line of questioning on whether that love translated to John Mahama, Mr Anyidoho simply implied an obligatory working relationship, noting that love was “conditional”.

He stated that he loved the NDC as a party and that “leadership will rotate” adding that “I loved President Mills; I worked for President Mahama.”
