The NDC Member of Parliament for Tain, Hon. Ahmed Ibrahim says he oppose to burying the late President Evans Atta Mills at the Flagstaff House in Accra.
The issue of where to bury the departed leader has become a subject of controversy among Ghanaians.

A member of the Funeral Committee had earlier on stated that government had decided to bury him (Mills) at the Flagstaff House, but the venue is still yet to be decided even though the final resting place for the late President reflected to be the Flagstaff House

However speaking on Asempa FM Ekosii Sen Show, Hon. Ahmed Ibrahim stated that the burial of Professor Mills at the Flagstaff House which is likely to turn into a tourist attraction in the near future will prevent the general public from visiting the tomb of the late President since that place is considered a security zone.

He instead suggested that, the late President Mills must be buried at a prepared site at the Castle since that is where he use to work while in office.

Hon Ahmed Ibrahim urged the Funeral Committee to consult broadly with all stakeholders to arrived at an appropriate and acceptable burial grounds for the late President
