Minister For Communications Rejects Spurious Jet Claim


The Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has rejected outright spurious claims by elements of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that she flew a private jet to campaign in the northern parts of the country.

She said she is currently focused on ensuring that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) retains power and would not be distracted by the personal hatred and propaganda being exhibited and added that she would strike at the right time against those NDC elements making the spurious claims.

Some NDC elements have been posting a supposed private jet on social media claiming it was being used by the minister, who doubles as NPP Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West in Accra, to campaign in the Upper East Region and as a result, President Akufo-Addo was insulted over the cooked-up issue.

It turned out that the minister flew on a passenger flight to Tamale and went by road to the Upper East Region and never used any private jet to the region as propagated by the NDC.

Setting the records straight on social media, the minister said categorically that “I FLEW TO TAMALE WITH AFRICA WORLD,” and even displayed her boarding pass which indicated she left Accra on September 29 at 3:30 pm and sat on Seat 4D to the Tamale Airport.

“I didn’t know Africa World Airline is now a private jet!!! I flew to Tamale on 28th September, last week Monday, enroute to the upper East Region for a campaign tour primarily to assist the female candidates in Navrongo and Bawku. I also went to Garu, Tempane, Pusiga, Zebilla, Binduri and Bolgatanga (sic),” she indicated.

She said that “here is my boarding pass and I actually changed seats and sat in 4 D. Some people have developed a penchant for lying through their teeth.”

She said “after 28 years of voting for the NDC, the lovely people of this incredibly beautiful part of Ghana have very little to show for it. They are determined to vote for the NPP for development, progress and prosperity, having seen what three and half years of focused dedicated and visionary leadership of NANA Akufo-Addo has done to transform every aspect of our lives (sic).”

The minister added “this feeble attempt to change this fact through half truths, lies and innuendos will fail. I met people who have decided to vote NPP for the first time because of the impact of our Planting For Food and Jobs has had on their livelihoods. Others are voting for free SHS. The Pwalugu dam is a major hit with them. The Bolga-Bawku road construction is ongoing, and they can see Bawku-Polimakom road construction with their own eyes!!!!! NPP’s footprint is in every home.

“We were welcomed with open arms for the first time ever in Natugnia and other NDC strongholds in Navrongo Central. Binduri, Pusiga, Garu, will fall this time and vote massively for NPP (sic).”

She also said that “HawaYakubu’s seat will once more be occupied by an NPP woman, Gabiana, inshallah!! The women of Bolgatanga Central are fired up to sweep Adongo away. I walked the streets and alleyways with them and felt their passion and zeal.NDC, be very afraid for you will lose massively (sic).”
