Making the presentation, Prof. Mills described himself as "as son of Cape Coast and that the money and items were meant to support Osabarima Kwesi Atta and his people in the celebration of the festival. The NDC presidential candidate, observed that festivals bring unity, and that he specifically donated the trophy to make the match more competitive and said GH=A21,000 of the amount should be used to support the match.

Osabarima Atta commended Prof. Mills for the donation, adding, "this is what is expected of a son".

He urged members and supporters of the NDC, to emulate Prof. Mills who is a man of peace, to help in the maintenance of peace in the country.

Meanwhile, persistent showers in the Cape Coast township, since Friday night and Saturday morning, is affecting a joyful and jubilant celebration.

Street ''jams'' were brought to an abrupt halt on Friday night and on Saturday morning, a procession of chiefs, which is one of the main attractions of the festival, has been delayed as a result of the rain. When the GNA, went round, the chiefs had converged at the junction to the Mfantsipim school, at about 1130 kours, and were waiting for the rain to subside for them to begin the procession which should have started at about 1000 hours. Some newly installed ''asafohene'' and ''asafohemaa'' and their supporters, had however defied the rain and were parading on the streets, but many residents, remained indoors, with a few carrying umbrellas going towards the ''Victoria Park'' where the durbar of chiefs would be held.Source:
