Letter from the President: A Cry from the West

Fri, 20 Aug 2004 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents,
As you may well be aware, I have started with my campaign for elections. Things are heating up and I am not taking any chances at all. The campaign has so far taken me to the Central and Western Regions.

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents,
As you may well be aware, I have started with my campaign for elections. Things are heating up and I am not taking any chances at all. The campaign has so far taken me to the Central and Western Regions.
To be honest with you, I am ashamed by what I saw in the Western Region. I am compelled to comment on the lack of development in the Western Region (and its retrogression) because my tour there coincided with the celebration of their ?homecoming? summit. It was an event for the sons and daughters of the region to take stock of the current state of the area and commit themselves to help change things. I can tell you that it?s been such a painful stock-taking process for them, and even for me.
