Statement by The Leon H. Sullivan Foundation on the Death of President John Evans Atta Mills of Ghana
It is with deep regret that the Leon H. Sullivan Foundation passes its condolences to the Family of President John Atta Mills and to the people of the Republic of Ghana. President Atta Mills has in the past demonstrated considerable good will and warmth toward the late Reverend Leon H. Sullivan.
His words and actions reflect the basis of the Global Sullivan Principles, in which he clearly articulated the role of corporate responsibility and the manner in which all Ghanaians should be treated, with equality, fairness and dignity.
Late President Atta Mills will be remembered as an advocate of good governance and transparency for the Republic of Ghana and one who was an ardent figure for the need for improved Human Rights across Africa. His efforts to improve the lives of Ghanaians were actions that our Foundation respects and admires, and practices through its work in Africa.
We wish the best to the people of Ghana during this period of mourning and we know that the country is able to continue its practice of good governance at a time during which Ghana is undertaking its presidential elections.
With deep condolences
Hope Sullivan Masters
