Mr Kwamena Duncan has revealed that government cannot release public funds to support the Library.
Central Regional Minister, Mr Kwamena Duncan has revealed that government cannot release public funds to support the Library because the memorial and research facility is a private initiative.
He said "this facility is purely a private enterprise to immortalise President Mills, so government cannot commit funds to its running."
He added that because the project was a private initiative such as presidents Kufuor and Rawlings’s foundations, no government funds could be released to fund the library.
To make matters worse, the contractor who worked on the project is said to have locked up the place and taken the keys away, denying the university access to the two-storey building situated opposite the Cape Coast Castle.
