Letter From The President: Shut Up, Tata Mills

Wed, 17 Aug 2005 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents, am sad to report that Asomdweehene Tata Mills has gone back to his ?copiatus? ways.
I don?t understand why the man takes delight in imitating my special initiatives. Since Sikaman citizens voted to return me to power, Tata Mills has not found it wise to hold a press conference to talk about my policies (good or bad). He only saw the need to do so after I had delivered one of my best public performances at last week?s media encounter. Just two days after my media encounter Tata Mills was on stage commenting on my ?shortcomings?. I have no problems with Tata Mills commenting on my shortcomings but we?d all have been happy if he had done so before my media encounter. As it turned out his press conference was in response to mine and not necessarily a platform for him to speak about my shortcomings. I will urge Tata Mills and his advisors to realize that their ?copiatus? ways do not auger well for the fortunes of their party and our democracy. No wonder his press conference did not attract as much attention and coverage as mine did.
