Ghana’s president John Atta Mills has died in Accra.
Atta was 68 years old and has been ruling Ghana since 2009.
He succeeded John Kufuor who completed his tenure, going on two terms.
The vice president of Ghana John Mahama would become the new president in line with the constitution of Ghana.
In 2009 Nigeria’s President Mr. Yar Adua also died in office after a protracted illness and a prolonged hide-and-seek game with the nature of his illness.
May the soul of John Atta Mills rest in peace and may Ghana’s true democracy continue to be a shining example to the rest of Africa.
