The Atta Mills Foundation, a pro-democracy Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) says it will consider taking over the management and day to day running of the Atta Mills Memorial Library.
The ultra modern library which was commissioned in 2016 in memory of the late President John Evans Atta Mills, has been shut down due to the unavailability of funds.
The facility, named the Atta Mills memorial Library, is located in Cape Coast in the Central Region, where Mills hailed from.
Speaking to Rainbow Radio’s Kwabena Agyapong, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Foundation, Koku Anyidoho, expressed pain at the failure of the current government, to manage the facility.
According to him, government invested heavily into the project and for government to allow the project to rot, the Foundation will consider taking over as managers.
He said, we will hold discussions with the University of Cape Coast the managers and look at the way forward.
Mr. Anyidoho said it is a government facility so go and ask Kwamena Duncan (Regional Minister) why they are refusing to pay electricity bills for the Atta Mills Memorial Library.’’
‘’It is sad and unfortunate for us to sit down and allow the facility to be closed down. Maybe the Atta Mills Foundation should take it over and run it as a private facility.’’ He added.
He also posited that there could be political influence connected to the issue.
