The minister-designate for Communications Ursula Owusu-Ekuful says she has toned down on her public commentary following a program she pursued at the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre .
According to her, the course “opened her eye” to the dangers that people bring to themselves with their comments and actions in the public space.
Ursula who is known for her vociferous posturing on radio and television political talkshows told the Appointments Committee Wednesday that she is a changed person and will continue to change for the better as she heads for the ministry.
“I think every individual must be able to adjust to situations depending on where you find yourself. But I think I deserve some commendation because for some time now you have been seeing the new Ursula and you will continue to see a transformed Ursula as we move ahead,” she said.
She added: “In being passionate about what we believe in, we need to know where to draw the line, we overdo it sometimes. In the heat of battle, we tend to respond to bullets fired at us with our own fire but I think the public should be made see that even though we are political opponents, we are not enemies. It’s incumbent on all of us to reduce the political heat, even in the heat of battle”.
