Ghana’s Communications Minister, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has debunked reports that she labelled critics of the Akufo-Addo government as witches.
Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful emphatically stated that she never called anyone names for complaining about the hardship in the country.
Narrating what she said, she indicated that 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.”

She also claimed that she 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 half years, just as the vice president, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia recently did during the NABCO anniversary celebrations.

“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. Mrs Owusu-Ekuful respects the right of all Ghanaians to have their own opinions about any issue though she may not agree with it,” a statement from the Minister’s office said.
