After coming under attack fromof alleged unsavory and reckless statement she made to the effect that “we are not going to allow NDC to come to power, over our dead bodies, the real owners of Ghana are now in charge” the Communication Minister Ursula Owusu-Ekuful says her statement were twisted for political gains.
According to her , her statement was taken out of context and tweaked to suit a political propaganda. I said that Akufo-Addo has restored the nation into a firmer foundation and that Ghana won’t go backwards again.”
She blamed the NDC for being fond of taken words out of context and put words in people’s mouths and running with it. They did it to me a few times.
She cited an example that prior to the 2016 elections she made a statement on free SHS to the effect that if she hadn’t been to school she would have beeping selling charcoal because she sold charcoal before, thus based on where they are coming fom the North if they had not been to school , they probably would have been herding cattle, the NDC twisted it to mean I insulted all northerners.
Ursula who was speaking on Good evening Ghana on a plethora of issues said “policies implemented by NPP have moved the country into a more solid foundation and all the indices pointed to it. This is what I said in two and somebody had to twist it. If you take a phrase and interpret it wrongly, maybe the writer ain’t a native Alan speaker.”
She argued that the Akufo-Addo government has solved ‘Dumsor’ and what the people are currently experiencing was the normal blackout, NABCO, Free SHS, planting for food among other thriving policies have made impact on the masses.
