Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has stated that she never tagged Ghanaians as witches for complaining about economic hardship under the Akufo-Addo led administration.

According to the Member of Parliament, she ''merely touted the NPP government’s achievements as remarkable and tangible and asserted that only blind propagandists would feign ignorance of these visible achievements which were obvious and touched every home in the country''.

The Ablekuma West constituency MP, Ursula Owusu, was reported to have said that, only witches are complaining of hardship in Ghana under the Nana Addo government.

However, in a statement, released by the office of the Minister today October 23 2019, she indicated that she didn't make such a reference but she only charged the NPP youth to trumpet President Akufo-Addo's achievements.

She also urged the public to disregard false media reports and treat them with the contempt they deserve.

The Minister also labeled as 'false' media reports which circulated on social media and demanded an apology and retraction from media houses who published the story.

''Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful respects the right of all Ghanaians to have their own opinions about any issue though she may not agree with it. She will continuously proclaim the envious achievements of the NPP Government to all and not relent in defusing the false reportage and vile propaganda put out by others,'' the statement further indicated.
