The Member of Parliament for Akim Abuakwa South, Hon. Samuel Atta- Akyea has urged Ghanaians to maintain the sense of unity that has been achieved following the death of the late President John Evans Attah Mills.

According to him, the nation has been divided over the years along political lines even when there is the need for unity to confront a problem or challenge facing the country.

He was speaking at the funeral rites organized for the ex-President Mills at the Banquet Hall at the State House on Wednesday.

Lawyer Atta-Akyea noted that Ghanaians should not only converge as one people only at the death of the former President but also during various matters of life which affects the nation.

“ I hope one of this days all the political parties will converge and say that we will fill the soul of Ghana whether NDC, NPP,PPP, that is when the nation will begin to think and improve” he said.

Hon Atta-Kyea wondered why the nation cannot translate the same historical experience of national unity into the country’s development effort.

“When it touches our very lives, let us have the same convergence as has been done since the ex- President died, that is what I think will help the nation” he added.
