The President of Ghana, John Evan Atta Mills marks his 68th birthday today.
To underscore his caring nature, the President has in the past, reached out to orphans in parts of the country.
They include the Peace and love orphanage, Osu Children's Home in Accra and the Fetteh Orphanage in the Central region.
Director of Communications at the Presidency, Koko Anyidoho in an interview with XYZ News, said the President intends celebrating his birthday in a similar manner.
“President Mills is not known to be an open celebrant of his birthday, for him, it is always a very quiet moment and private for him.
“Years down the line some donations have been done on his behalf to various orphanages and the less advantaged ones and I think the same thing will happen this year”.
Meanwhile, as part of celebrations the Atta Mills Brotherhood International Ghana will embark on a campaign against Malaria.
The group will also participate in a vigil today organized by the Ododododiodio branch of the NDC.
