Minister of Communications, and MP for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu Ekuful has slammed the opposition National Democratic Congress, accusing them of playing cheap politics with the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to her, even though she knows there is an impending election, she cannot understand why anyone would want a deadly pandemic like COVID-19 to escalate just because of a hunger for power.
“if you think you are advancing the course of your political party via COVID-19, when we all die, whom are you going to govern; let say if you come back to the government, a nation of sick or dead people or ghosts.” She said.
The outspoken MP who was speaking on Peace Fm’s Kokrokoo recounted a remark made by a lady which really saddened her. “On Monday a lady went to sit on Metro TV to say the disease has killed your Sir John…saa. I felt so sad. Do you know when and where the disease will pop up?. Sir John is a Ghanaian and one of us. No single life should be lost to this virus.” She narrated.
