Shhhhhh – it’s a big secret… but the suspense is killing folks. The Point Newspaper joined the ranks of those waiting impatiently for NADD to name their flagbearer. The following appeared on the point yesterday. Sorry the link isn’t active at this juncture. Will link up when available. Link
Has NADD Named its Flagbearer?
Thursday 5th January 2006
Someone hinted us yesterday that the opposition, National Alliance for Democracy and Development (NADD), has just named their flagbearer following nationwide samples of opinion. Is that so? What a good news if all comes to light! Our source further informed us that the selection didn’t go without some itches. We were told that one executive member is not in support of the chosen flagbearer.Could the leadership tell us who the flagbearer is to avoid rumorr mongering?We are anxious to know, as it is vital to know ones presidential aspirant or would be leader, for many reasons. Anyway, we are impatiently waiting to see who the person is.
Could it be that NADD’s executive settled on Ousainou Darbo and Waa Juwara objected. These two fellows have fallen out over tactics and it is conceivable that after what transpired between them after the last presidential election, that Waa will argue against the leadership of Darbo on the grounds that he will acquiesce when the going gets tough. And believe me folks it only get tougher from here on.
I am only conjecturing at this point. And before somebody jump on my case for rumor mongering, hold your guns. I am not a journalist. I don’t confuse “linking” with “reporting.” Nor do I confuse punditry with reporting, opinion with fact, and have never claimed to be a reporter. This is an opinion weblog and it should be seen and read as such.
