Madam Ursula Owusu, the NPP's Parliamentary Candidate for Ablekuma South, has advised Hon. Fritz Baffour and the NDC's parliamentary candidate that she is not the problem for him.
“His headache should be how to convince the people of Korle Bu, where he sleeps on the Board of the Hospital and does nothing; KorleGonno, where he zooms past because he has done nothing for them; Chorkor where he has presided over the collapse of the fishing industry, Manprobi and New Mamprobi which have seen no improvement under his tenure; Gbegbeyise, Shiabu and Glefe where he is deceitfully claiming credit for infrastructure developments begun by the NPP administration and long suffering Dansoman which is patiently enduring the shoddy construction of a road which has destroyed livelihoods of shop owners and businesses along it. The majority of these good people of Ablekuma South are waiting patiently for the day of salvation to show him the red card for his incompetence and inefficiency as an MP and vote him out, as they welcome the Woman of Substance, Vision and Courage, Ursula Owusu, to provide them with visionary and dynamic servant leadership as their new Member of Parliament,” Madam Ursula Owusu has stated.
In a blistering attack issued over the weekend, Ms. Ursula Owusu called on Fritz Baffour to wake up to the reality that his inadequacies as MP are catching up with him and the day of reckoning, 7th December, is fast approaching.
“Weep for yourself, Fritz Baffour!” Ursula Owusu charged.
The NPP firebrand was reacting in apparent response to what she described as an infantile press statement put out by the campaign office of 'Honorable' Fritz Baffour and wondered if that was the manner in which he intended to retain his tenuous hold on the Ablekuma South Parliamentary seat.
“I was amazed because he chose to launch his campaign in Chorkor, the heartland of the fishing industry in Greater Accra, which is currently reeling under the harsh effect of their poor economic policies, nonexistent enforcement of the Fishing law, escalating prices of fishing inputs and rapidly dwindling catch and increasing impoverishment of the fisher folk, all under the watch of the NDC Government of H.E. Atta Mills, and said nothing to address their concerns but chose to attack Ursula Owusu,” she wrote.
Ursula Owusu stated that instead of assuring the anxious constituents of Ablekuma South that he will advocate their cause and seek a resolution of their many problems, to merit their continued trust in his competence, Fritz Baffour and his campaign team rather decided to descend into the gutter and spew lies and totally discredited propaganda about the universally condemned attack on her at Odododiodio during the registration exercise.
“He should be ashamed of this lame attempt to justify the dastardly violent assault on women merely educating other women on their legal right to register and vote anywhere in this country they reside in or are ordinarily resident in. Fritz should bow his head in shame that instead of joining other right thinking Ghanaians to condemn that unprovoked assault on Ursula, he is seeking solace in lies and dirty propaganda, and applauding the perpetrators who are currently under police investigation. As a Minister of State, he should be assuring the women in his constituency that he will be vocal and visible in their defence, instead of supporting their assailants. What kind of person is this?
“I had wrongly assumed that he would seek to inject some credibility into the Information Ministry which has been dubbed the 'Ministry of Misinformation and Lies' by Ghanaians, but true to type, he is merely continuing with the tradition of lies laid down by his late lamented predecessors in office and his deputies.
“The good people of Ablekuma South are fed up with the incessant propaganda and lies of the current MP and the NDC government and are looking forward to the day when their Member of Parliament will be more interested in finding solutions to their problem of poor sanitation, infrastructure, unemployment, increasing poverty and despair among many others than in feeding them propaganda and lies,” Ursula Owusu wrote.
