She is known to be one of the most vociferous politicians in Ghana today but such utter verve and "no-nonsense" demeanor was left behind during her time at the appointment committee today.
Looking all jovial, relaxed but yet confident, the minister designate for communications, Ursula Owusu Ekuful revealed that she had turned a new leaf making her more measured in her political utterances.
“I think that Ursula is very much in evidence and has been for a while, at least I have had comments in that direction in the last couple of years. I think that depending on where you find yourself you should be able to adapt to changing circumstances. An illustration is that you don't always have to drive in 5th gear. You need to crank up and crank down depending on the circumstances. But I must thank the Kofi Annan International Peace Keeping Training Centre for opening my eyes to some of the dangers we unwittingly lead ourselves to with our actions and utterances, and tells me to step back and tone down a bit…pause a bit more before jumping into the fray. Mr Chairman I think you have to commend me on that. I think you’re seeing the improved Ursula and there will be a lot more of that in evidence, thank you,” she revealed.
If approved, Ursula Owusu will become Ghana's first female minister of communications in the 4th republic.
