Letter From The President: Maliu, My Mate

Fri, 24 Sep 2004 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents,
whoever took the decision for my party to hold its recent extraordinary delegates? congress in Kumasi has won a HIPC dustbin for his village. It was a very wise, sensible decision, which was perfectly made for me. Holding the congress in Kumasi, I believe, has proved to Jerry Boom and his uncomfortable democrats that ?man pass man?. They drew crowds for the launch of their manifesto in the Garden City but I drew multitudes to my congress. The heavy turn out was such an ego booster and I wished the congress had lasted a few more days. But, as they say, all good things must come to an end. Even my presidency must end, but not until I?ve ?chopped? four more years on the Golden Black Star Stool.
Before the congress, there was a lot of speculation about whom I would choose to sit on the little stool besides Black Star Stool. Many suggested that I would drop Maliu. At some point, I must admit, I seriously considered dropping Maliu. But after considering all the pluses and minuses, I decided that he was the ideal running mate.
