Letter From The President: Scapegoat Bartels

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents has any of you tried to call the Minister for PSD and PSI lately? Well, don?t even bother calling him because he is out of coverage area. He is not on a national assignment is some far off village, though. He is with me right here in Accra. He has chosen to stay out of coverage area because he?s licking his wounds after he was forced tell the whole nation that he doesn?t often mean what he says and that he hardly says what he means.
Over the past couple of months I have been thinking about how to boost food production in Sikaman. So during one of our cabinet meetings I suggested that perhaps we should introduce another Presidential Special Initiative under which politicians will be granted cash and free land to farm. It had been done very successfully in undemocratic Cote d?Ivoire under the tyrannical rule of Hophouet Boigny. But I knew right from the onset that it was a silly idea that will not go down well with the majority of our people.
