Letter from President: Hail CDD, Shame NDC

Wed, 10 Aug 2005 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents, I hear that the NDC has decided to sever all ties with the Ghana Centre for Democratic Development. They?ve made it clear that they will not talk with CDD officials, sit and dine with them or even joke with them. They?ve not said so publicly but I suppose they might even ask their supporters not to drive past CDD offices or read any news item or document which mentions CDD.

They?ve taken this childish decision because the CDD?s recent afrobarometer survey came up with some interesting figures and conclusions which do not support their prideful and ego-boosting view that they are still a force to be reckoned with in Sikaman politics. To refresh your memory that survey indicated that if elections were held today, the ruling party will win with 53 percent of the votes and the NDC poll a mere 22 percent. That survey also indicated that there was a growing perception of corruption in Sikaman and that people are worried. It also found that the citizens of Sikaman are discontent because most of them cannot afford to buy a tin of milk and that a lot of them are still depending and gari and ?moko yerawa? for their nutritional needs.
