I Am Not Arrogant – Ursula Owusu
Communications Minister-designate, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful says she will prefer to describe her outlook as fair and firm rather than temperamental or arrogant as many have suggested in the past.
She said this when she appeared before parliament’s Appointments Committee for vetting.
A member of the committee, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa sought to question the nominee about her conduct and language to some colleagues in her capacity as minister.
He cited some three letters including one to Member of Parliament for Ajumako and ranking member on the Finance Committee, Cassiel Ato Forson, in which her language appeared temperamental, questioning how she intends to address the subject.
Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful in her response said she merely used idiomatic expressions, especially in the case of Mr Ato Forson when she mentioned that she would not go to the brothel for advice.
According to her, her words were taken out of context to suggest she may have been insulting or arrogant.
Rather she says, she is and will only remain fair and firm in the disposition of her duties.
