Letter From The President: Eva must go

Wed, 3 Aug 2005 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents, a few months ago
I wrote about the state broadcaster and insisted that it should be sold off on the grounds that it was a non-performing ?asset?. That was when they announced their 70th anniversary celebrations. Well, once again I have cause to write about GBC.
Am annoyed because they?ve gone ahead with their ?celebrations? ? organizing various commemorative programmes ? even though they know very well that they have absolutely nothing to celebrate about. They are simply celebrating because GBC is 70. It?s like throwing a party for a 70-year-old nitwit who has achieved nothing in life. They are hanging on to a very flimsy claim that GBC?s 70th anniversary ought to be celebrated with pomp and ceremony because the corporation has contributed to ?national cohesion?. Really?
