Letter From The President: Women Arise!

Tue, 31 Jan 2006 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents, I have some good news for you ? the women are taking over the world and we should all be very happy about that. Last year, the Germans voted in a woman chancellor, the first in that country?s history. Not long after the German elections, Liberians voted in Ellen Johnson Sirleaf ? Africa?s first woman president. Just about a week ago, the people of Chile also voted for a female president. Much earlier, people in countries such as the Philippines and Finland had voted for female leaders.

It?s a new wave ? a new wind which is blowing across the world and has made people recognize that their destinies are better shaped by the hands of women and that the female species make the best leaders. I know that this is no good news for the chauvinists but for me it is very welcome, pleasant news. My problem, however is that the wind is not blowing fast enough and it seems that it will take a long time for this wind to blow over Sikaman (and the rest of Africa).
