Vim lady attacks Ursula Owusu after saying anyone who sent GHc100 Momo was rich and was not suffering in the economy.
Afia Pokua aka Vim Lady, a Ghanaian media figure, has attacked Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the Minister of Communications and Digitalization, for her recent address on the E-levy on transactions.
The Minister of Communications and Digitalization spoke about the implementation of the E-levy, which was indicated by the Finance Minister during the presentation of the 2021 budget.
Pokua alias Vim Lady after posting a 24-second video of the now-viral ‘poor person’ definition the Minister made on Accra-based GHOne TV on Wednesday, November 18, 2021 has also attacked her on the radio.
This was after the minister said “Now if you have more than 100 cedis to send a day, then you are not poor, yes. So if you really are poor and you are in a position to send 100 cedis a day, then we need to reclassify our definition of who the real beneficiaries of this are.”
She said on her political show “Egyaso Egyaso” that
”I completely disagree with Honorable Ursula Owusu’s assertion that as long as someone can send one hundred (100) Ghana cedis, then that person is rich. People borrow monies from banks to transact businesses and so if a market woman has borrowed money and transferred same to supplies, it does not mean that person is rich. People are really suffering and hungry too”
Also,as many are blaming the government for the hardships in the country, a Twitter user identified as AsepaGhana laid blames on rapper Sarkodie for the reason why Ghanaians are suffering.
According to him, the multiple award-winning musician took money for the NPP and told Ghanaians in a song to vote for the NPP because of Free SHS and Free Electricity.
AsepaGhana claimed that the words of Sarkodie in his “Happy Day” song were such bad endorsement from a big brand him and he’s the reason why Ghanaians are facing hardship today.
