Deputy Minister of Defense, Rt. Major Derrick Oduro is backing calls by her former colleague Member of Parliament for North Dayi Akua Sena Dansua that the remains of the former President should be relocated from the Asomdwee Park to the military cemetery.

He however pointed out that at the time of the death of the former President the place was befitting because it was close to the seat of government, the place was decorated to the best of their ability by state protocol.

Now the seat of government is no more there and the current President Nana Akufo-Addo Commander in Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces has authorized that VVIPs now be buried there, former Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur has been buried there.

Major Derrick Oduro said in an interview that he supports the exhumation of the late former President John Mills because where his remains is now is isolated as the place is no longer the seat of government sooner the place would be forgotten.

He added that the call is in the right direction as a former late President it would be a step well taken when that is done.
