NDC’s Mills for the grill

Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress, Professor John Evans Atta Mills will at 5pm today come face to face with the public to answer questions on his plans for a better Ghana.

The venue is the Alisa Hotel at North Ridge where the economic think tank, the Institute of Economic Affairs and Joy FM has set up table for Professor Mills to speak for twenty minutes and then spend the next 90 minutes to answer questions from the electorate – economists, health workers, politicians, engineers, farmers, industrialists etc.

The forum is part of IEA's Election 2008 Presidential Debate in furtherance of its main objectives of promoting private-sector-led economic development and assist in the process of democratic consolidation in Ghana and throughout Africa.

Already the Convention People's Party's Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom has had his turn, and according to Mrs. Jean Mensah, IEA Administrator, lessons from that episode including too limited time for questioning has informed the 90-minute questioning time for Mills.

The encounter will be transmitted live on Joy 99.7 FM.
