Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu Ekuful (Hon) has urged Deputy Finance Minister under Mahama’s erstwhile administration, Cassiel Ato Forson to stop writing letters to her because it won’t change anything.
The Minister who was speaking on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show with Daniel Dadzie advised Ato Forson to rather seek redress at the right forum if he has issues with her directives to telcos on how to implement the 9% Communication Service Tax (CST).
Ato Forson, Member of Parliament for the Ajumako-Enyan-Esiam Constituency, in a letter to the Communications Minister, stated that it was wrong for the minister to give directives to telcos on how to collect the tax.
However, the minister, in her latest response, has asked him to stop writing letters to her.
“He should go to the right forum if he disagrees with my role in the CST directives. He can write a thesis but that won’t change the law”.
“I am not obliged to Ato Forson’s interpretation of the law; because I don’t see any conflict in my role over the communication directives,” Mrs Ekuful added.
Reacting to her choice of words she used in her reply letter to Ato Forson, she explained that; “There was nothing abusive in my choice of words because these were idioms; and I have no idea the brothel Ato Forson is talking about.”
