In response to Ursula Owusu Ekuful, the Minister of Communication, accusing him of calling her names without providing any proof, Buem MP Kofi Adams has defended his Tamale Central colleague.
The Minister was renowned, according to Mr. Adams, for making claims without providing proof to back them up.
He claims that the Minister previously referred to the former president John Mahama as “dzulor” (a thief) in an interview with one of JoyNews’ sister stations without presenting any supporting documentation.
This person is known for disparaging people without any basis in fact, so I won’t say anything more. I acknowledge that two wrongs don’t equal a right, but let’s be clear that this is a person who is also renowned for it, he stated on Thursday’s JoyNews AM broadcast.
The minister of communication and digitalization, Ursula Owusu, spoke up during yesterday’s contentious debate in parliament about the anti-LGBTQ+ law to refute charges made by Murtala Mohammad that she practised the movement.
The minister demanded in an irate voice from the MP whether she had shared similar behaviour with his daughter, mother, or wife.
She recanted several of her points, some of which seemed to include subliminal attacks.
Kofi Adams, the MP for Buem, disputes that she is a practising lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender person (lgbtq+), claiming that the assertion that she is was made by her a while back in accordance with other news websites.
“Well, was he stating facts or was he just speculating? Words may have their own meaning. There are several reports available if you so want. I was recently reading a Ghana Web post from 2021 April 29 that mentioned that the minister for communication and digitalization is believed to have hinted that she dabbled with what they describe to as “supisupi” at the time, but it was actually labelled lesbianism, which I didn’t want to even mention. Was it what Murtala intended to say?
Mr. Adams stated, “In this state, one could decide to extrapolate it,” saying that the articles had not since been changed and that the minister had not replied.
In the meanwhile, he has also highlighted that it is challenging for the speaker to order that an utterance be deleted from the records because the MP for Tamale Central did not make the accusation while speaking into the microphone.
