Letter From The President: These Ultimatums

Wed, 15 Jun 2005 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents, it appears that my ministers are growing very impatient with those they are supposed to be working with. The latest fad amongst them is the issuance of ultimatums. Over the past couple of weeks, at least three ministers have issued ultimatums demanding action from various people.

First, I heard the Works and Housing Minister, Manhack (who, by the way, is suing every newspaper which so much as makes a mistake of misspelling his name) issuing an ultimatum to officials of the Water Company in the Northern Region to restore supply to the Tamale Metropolis (which has been without water for weeks). He instructed them to make sure that water starts flowing within six months? or else? Well, he didn?t exactly say. But from what I heard the regional manager of the water company say on radio, it appears that Manhack?s ultimatum will not be met.
