Letter From The President: Just a Game?

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents,

I have heard some people saying that ?there is a lot of tension in Sikaman.? I often hear this being said by all sorts of people:from democracy advocates to chainsaw operators. But over the last couple of weeks, a lot more people have joined in the chorus and have even gone further to blame Jerry Boom and me for the perceived tension. This was after Jerry Boom had compared me to the allegedly notorious armed robber, Atta Ayi during his ?Wahala II? demonstration. After he had made this comparison, the chairman of my party, Mr. Ekessu organized a grand press conference at which he attached all sorts insulting labels to Jerry Boom. As a result of these exchanges, many people are saying that the tension in the country has increased. Others have called on me and Jerry Boom to exercise restraint, resolve our difference and live together in harmony as statesmen.

All well and good!
