Mills was a law professor and a tax expert before becoming Ghana's vice president from 1997 to 2000. He later became the president of Ghana in 2009 till he died in July, 2012. Before going into politics, Mills lectured at the University of Ghana, Temple University, Pennsylvania and Leiden University, Netherlands.
His death came as a shock though unsurprising because of his long battle with cancer. However, it came too suddenly as Mills died at a military hospital within just a few hours of his illness.
His casket was laid to rest near Osu Castle on Friday 10th August, 2012.
