It’s not much but when you get a government official to address a statement which seems callous and arrogant it shows at least that they care a little about appearances.
All the complaints and criticism labelled at her over this statement has heated her butt, forcing Ursula to respond.
The Communications Minister has released a statement addressing a recent trending story that she had called critics of the government as witches.
Ursula, in a speech to party youth, said if anyone claims not to see the good works of the current government then what that person is doing is witchcraft, comments which many reported as her calling them a witch.
Honestly, it’s pretty much the same – people engaging in witchcraft are witches.
But in a statement released earlier today, Ursula denied calling anyone a witch.
“The Member of Parliament never called anyone a witch for complaining. She merely touted the NPP government’s achievements as remarkable and tangible and asserted that only blind propagandists would feign ignorance of these visible achievements which were obvious and had touched every home in this country,” the statement ‘nicely’ said.
“The Member of Parliament urged the youth to boldly respond to propagandists with the truth and to itemise the strides made by the NPP government in the past two-and-a-half years, just as the Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia recently did during the NABCo anniversary celebrations.
“She never instructed the youth to shut complainants down as the news article purportedly suggested.”
The statement added: “We take serious exception to this false story which has received wide circulation, readership, and subsequent publication from other media houses and demand a retraction and apology.
“The office also urges the public to disregard these false media reports and treat them with the contempt they deserve. Mrs Owusu-Ekuful respects the right of all Ghanaians to have their own opinion about any issue though she may not agree with it. She will continuously proclaim the envious achievements of the NPP government to all and not relent in defusing the false reportage and vile propaganda put out by others. Truth is the only antidote for lies and propaganda”.
