Captain Smart will suffer, not me – Ursula Owusu fights back

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Communications Minister, has hit back strongly at Captain Smart, a radio presenter, after the latter rained curses on her for allegedly not being candid with expenses on the virtual concert to launch the COVID-19 Tracker App.

The minister, in a Facebook post indicated that she returns Captain Smart’s curses back to him, “he and his family will suffer, not me.”

The Ablekuma West legislator had been accused by the Adom FM presenter of spending huge sums of cedis on musicians who performed at the virtual concert.

He subsequently invoked curses on any persons who intended to capitalize on the novel Coronavirus to enrich themselves.

“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.

Ursula Owusu in her reaction to the presenter stated that the Government of Ghana did not pay a pesewa to anyone for either the COVID-19 Tracker App or the virtual concert.

“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 said.
