Letter From The President: So far, too tough

Fri, 1 Oct 2004 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents,
I was shocked to my bones when I heard the news that the NDC?s assistant flagbearer, Nimumu, had been involved in an accident. In my mind, Nimumu has changed the pace of the presidential race and if, I am not careful, things might not turn out the way I expect them to. His accident has really thrown my mind into further turmoil. I hope that the accident was not caused by an overzealous loyalist of mine who thought he could do me a favour by eliminating Nimumu. I also hope that the NDC did not stage the accident to attract more attention to Nimumu and, perhaps, win a few sympathy votes. Thank God Nimumu is alive. His femur will be fixed and he will be ok.
Nimimu?s appointment as the Tata Mills? running mate and, indeed, his accident have made me a little bit uneasy. In all honesty, I must say that I am not as confident as I was at the beginning of the year about my chances of winning. My mind was focused on winning, and wining convincingly, until Tata Mills selected Nimumu as his running mate. Now everything seems to be going so fast and I am at a loss as to whether or not I am capable of winning the elections in the first round.
