Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the minister of communications, stated that the respect she received led her to back Vice President Dr. Mahamudu’s bid for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer position.
She claims that Dr. Bawumia personally visited her home to notify her of his desire to run for president.
“He was the only one who showed respect and came to my house to inform me about his ambition and asked that I support him. Some of the aspirants after they refused to come were roaming and making claims that we were whipped to support Bawumia.
“Do I look like someone who can be forced into doing something I don’t want? she quizzed.
Dr. Bawumia asked for her assistance, which she will provide totally.
“Just like Jacob and Esau, he has taken the blessings. So if the rest think I’m not fit to push them, no problem,” she noted during the NPP Super Delegates Conference.
The Ablekuma West MP further emphasized that Dr. Bawumia’s knowledge, experience, and skills were what motivated her to endorse her.
“His demeanour, human relation, and since he started moving with Akufo-Addo in 2007, have you heard of any issues? Look at the other former presidents and their vices. All the aspirants are fit for purpose but Dr Bawumia stands out,” she declared.
