Dr Ernestina Naadu Mills’ tribute to her late husband and President, Prof John Evans Atta Mills, is probably one of the shortest tribute to have ever been written in the world by a wife to her husband.
The former First Lady did not mince words to describe her husband.
In twenty words, Dr Ernestina Naadu Mills’ tribute read: “Fiifi, you were a blessing to me, Ghana, Africa and the world. Thank you. Rest peacefully in the LORD. Ernestina.”
Dr Ernestina Naadu Mills has maintained her composure ever since the news of her husband’s death emerged.
As a sign of last respect to her husband, she went to the Banquet Hall of the State House in the early hours of Friday, August 10 to view for the last time the mortal remain of her husband which had been laid in state since Wednesday.
The state funeral of the late President Mills, which has seen an unprecedented outpouring of public sympathy, was culminated in a burial ceremony steeped in distinctive military traditions.
The mortal remain of the late President was laid to rest at the now christened ‘Asomdwee Park’, formerly the Geese Park near the seat of Government, Castle, Osu.
