Members of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) today at an emergency meeting passed a resolution to rename the new Millennium City School at the Salvation Army Cluster of Schools and the Accra High Street after the late President Mills.

The Salvation Army Cluster of School would now be known as President Evans Atta Mills Educational Centre of Excellence whilst the Accra High Street would form henceforth be called the Evans Atta Mills High Street.

Speaking at the meeting, the Mayor of Accra, Mr Alfred Vanderpuije, said the resolution was in recognition of the late President’s immeasurable contribution to the improvement of social and economic infrastructural facilities within the Accra metropolis.

He reminded the Assembly members of the late President’s provision of easy access and promotion of quality education both at first and second cycle schools.

“We need to remember his desire to improve upon the quality of teaching and learning for students to enhance their academic and social achievements”, he said.

Additionally, the late President had expectation for high standards and his anticipation for the right thing to be done at all times, which resulted in his immense support for the AMA to abolish and eradicate the shift system.

“His tireless effort to removing all managerial, financial and structural challenges confronting education, construction of roads and drains, upgrading of communities and the general development of the Accra metropolis”, he said.

Mr Vanderpuije, however, urged members of the Assembly to always be guided by the principles of the late President and provide infrastructural development to their various communities.

The Presiding Member of the meeting, Mr Desmond NiiAddoBinney, explained that the renaming of the school and street was in accordance with some provisions of the Local Government Act 462.

Some members of the assembly were optimistic that the renaming of the school and street would go a long way to keep the memory of the late President alive in the minds of Ghanaians.

They also opted that all the millennium city schools be named after the late President and also be equipped with the best resources to make it the best schools in the country.
