Koku Anyidoho, the founder of Atta Mills Institute, has been granted permission to profit from the late President’s name.
However, the family has warned him not to claim the late Atta Mills’ body as his legitimate property.
Samuel Atta Mills, the late President’s brother, stated this in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen program on Wednesday.
Mr Anyidoho, a former aide to the late President, has vowed to carry on his mentor’s legacy on the 10th anniversary of his death.
As part of that, he advocated for the renovation of his final resting place, Asomdwee Park, to international standards.
Mr Anyidoho went on to say that he feels obligated to work tirelessly in memory of the late President Atta Mills.
However, Samuel Atta Mills stated that preserving his brother’s memory does not imply that Mr Anyidoho should usurp the family’s rights.
“You can’t be Atta Mills any more than anyone else; as a family, we’re sick and tired of this boy,” he raged.
The Komenda’s Edina Eguafo Abrem, a Member of Parliament, couldn’t understand why his brother’s aide was attempting to be holier than the Pope.
“Can you own someone you’ve only known for six years?” “You can’t take us for granted,” said Mr Mills.
