Ghana’s Communication Minister, Madam Ursula Owusu has hit back at media personality Captain Smart for cursing her after he accused her of being economical with the truth regarding expenses on the virtual concert to launch Ghana’s COVID-19 Tracker App.
The minister took to Facebook to return Captain Smart’s curses back to him; “he and his family will suffer, not me”, she wrote.
Ursula Owusu who is Ablekuma West Member of Parliament was accused by the Adom FM presenter of spending large sums of money on musicians who performed at the virtual concert.
He then went ahead to invoke curses on any persons who intended to capitalize on COVID-19 to make themselve richer.
“Today, I want to tell you something. I’ve been asked to hold my bomb on this issue, but there’s only one thing I want to tell you. Never try to enrich yourselves with the coronavirus pandemic. Why is the minister lying to Ghanaians and the artistes also denying receiving the money? God will punish you, and your punishment won’t be mild, you’ll suffer extremely,” he fumed.
However, in her reaction to the allegation, Ursula Owusu stated that the Government of Ghana did not pay a Pesewa to anyone for either the Tracker App itself or the virtual concert.
She wrote; “Someone should please tell Captain Smart that I return his curses on me to sender. He and his family will suffer, not me. I don’t lie and for those who find it hard to believe or are hard of hearing, let me repeat it again”.
“GOVERNMENT OF GHANA DID NOT PAY A PESEWA TO ANYONE FOR EITHER THE COVID 19 TRACkER APP OR THE VIRTUAL CONCERT TO LAUNCH IT”.
“I don’t know what he ate, drank or smoked but I have not received any money from anyone for this or been given any invoice to pay. There is no nokofio on my watch. Chew on it”.
She further disclosed that the App is now availabe for downloads on both Android and iOS users.
