Premier Paula Cox has extended condolence to the Government and people of Ghana on the passing of President John Atta Mills.

Mr Atta Mills had ruled the West African country since 2009 and died yesterday [July 24] at age 68. His Vice-President John Dramani Mahama has been sworn in as his replacement.

In her message, Premier Cox stated: “On behalf of the Government and people of Bermuda, I extend sincere condolence to the Government and people of Ghana on the sudden passing of President John Atta Mills.

“President Mills served his country well and contributed to the consolidation of a tradition of stable democracy which Ghana has maintained since 1957 when it became the first African nation to declare independence.

“President Mills’ contribution was not confined to the political arena as he was also a respected professor of law as well as an acknowledged expert on taxation.

“Evidence of the success of the late President’s efforts at contributing to the political stability of his country is reflected in the smooth transition of power to the newly sworn in President John Dramani Mahama to whom we also extend our best wishes for success in his new position.

“While mourning their loss, the people of Ghana can give thanks for the service of the late President, who provided a true example of a life well lived in the service of his country and people.”
