The Concerned women Ghana (CWG) has urged the Minister for Communications, Mrs Ursula Osuwu-Ekuful to avail herself to be mentored by the First Lady of the republic, Rebecca Akufo-Addo.
The Communications Minister recieved massive backlash from a cross section of the public after she reported said in an interview on Accra-based Asempa FM Thursday, February 23, that Ghana belongs to a selected few.
She is reported to have said “the NPP are the real owners of Ghana,” including other unprintable words others described as “insensitive” against the minority for walking out when President Akuffo-Addo delivered the State of The Nation Address to the house last week.
The CWG in a statement signed by Annette Enyo, Executive Secretary, described Mrs. Ursula-Osuwu’s “Y’agye Y3 man” as social evil that has the tendency of causing public outrage.
“we wish to educate the honorable minister on the fact that every single Ghanaian possesses a strong feeling of identity and so the ‘Y’agye Y3 man” comment which we urged as a social evil, does not sit right with Ghana and has potential of causing public protects.”
It added the country needs women with strong voices but that should be accompanied by some level of sensitivity and respect.
The CWG has therefore advised the Ablekuma West legislator to retract her comments and render an an unqualified apology to her colleagues MPs in the the minority and to also avail herself to be mentored by the First Lady.
Our advice as women to a fellow woman, Ursula needs to get off her high horse and avail herself to be mentored by our first lady Mrs. Rebecca Akufo Addo who we accolade for her self respect.The statement concluded.
