Letter From The President: Killing them softly

Mon, 29 Nov 2004 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents,
These are exciting times in Sikaman. With less than two weeks to go to the polls I am convinced that there is something fishy going on somewhere in my party. It?s about the amount of media space ? airtime and columns ? we have acquired for our campaign. We have been too ostentatious and flamboyant with out adverts and many Sikaman citizens, including myself, cannot help but wonder where we got all the money from.

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents,
These are exciting times in Sikaman. With less than two weeks to go to the polls I am convinced that there is something fishy going on somewhere in my party. It?s about the amount of media space ? airtime and columns ? we have acquired for our campaign. We have been too ostentatious and flamboyant with out adverts and many Sikaman citizens, including myself, cannot help but wonder where we got all the money from.
The bad thing is that the opposition does not seem able to match our media buying space. I have lost track of the number of my party?s television ads. But I know that the NDC only has three ? well, I am not so good at counting and I stand to be corrected. In the average news bulletin, my party?s ads are played about four times and the NDC?s ad only appears once. In the newspapers, there are so many adverts for my party ? frontpage strips and full-page pullouts in almost all the daily newspapers. Well, the NDC has so been able to only a manage a few frontpage strips and I am yet to come across a fullpage pullout in any newspaper ? except for the sleazy Ghana Palaver and the misnamed National Democrat.
