Letter From The President: Sweet Smell of Victory

Fri, 17 Dec 2004 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents, losers and winners,
Those who are licking their wounds and those who are savouring the sweet smell of victory, my heart is filled with so much gladness as I write this letter. I am so elated for the history I?ve made ? being the first and only democratic leader in our nation?s history (one without a military past) to be re-elected to a second term in office. I predicted this victory early this year and I told you that come what may I would stay in the Castle until 2008.

I know that most of you voted for me out of goodwill and not because I have been such a great leader. You voted for me because there was no alternative. I may not be the perfect leader but you all realized that I was better than the other candidates. I will say ?something? about my chief opponent, Tata Mills in a brief moment. But I want to draw your attention to the fact that my long-held belief that the other candidates were merely jokers has been confirmed.
