The flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the just ended December 7, 2004 general elections, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills will not attend the formal inauguration of the second term of President Kufuor if he is not issued with a personal invitation.
According to the Director of Communications of the Prof. Mills campaign in the last elections, Nii Lantey Vanderpuye said as at yesterday, 4th January, 2005, they had not received a letter from the State Protocol.
He said Prof Mills had since the last elections been inundated with several invitations and offers from various people and as a result, had no time for arbitrary way of life.
Mr Nii Lantey Vaderpuye said it was of such delays on the part of the State which made it impossible for Prof. Mills to attend the State of the Nation address held at the Parliament house yesterday, 4th January, 2005.
He said at the time the invitation came in, Prof Mills had other equally pressing responsibilities.
The formal inauguration of President John Agyekum Kufuor's second term comes off on Friday, 7th January, 2005.
