Letter From The President: Odododiodio Speaks

Wed, 7 Sep 2005 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents,

The dust is finally settled. Odododiodio has come and gone (not exactly, but we can say the vote is over). We put up a good fight but we lost ? and lost miserably. First of all, let me congratulate the winning NDC candidate on his victory and welcome him to the world of freebies. A former pupil teacher, the new MP is now going to be called ?honourable?. He will receive 20 thousand dollars to buy a car of his choice. It?s a loan but the decision to pay back is entirely his and his alone.
I want to say better luck next time to the toll collector my party selected to contest that election. Mankatah can now go back to his job and start making plans to bury his late father. I have just been told that I made a promise to adopt Mankatah and provide for all his needs ? including helping him bury his father. I don?t remember making any such promise. In any case, it would have been very easy for me to fulfill this ?promise? if he had won the elections.
