Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West constituency, Hon. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has made a profound argument about her money and the money of her husband.
According to Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, her money is her money and that of her husband is theirs. She said it’s her principle and as such, she believes it is the duty of the husband to give housekeeping money.
The Minister of Communication argued that she sees no wrong in that and whatever her husband gets – she deserves a share of it. She made these arguments while speaking in an interview on Asempa FM.
Speaking on her husband’s business which she regularly promotes on social media, Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful noted that “whether I promote him or not, whatever money he gets, we’ll share.” Just recently, the minister was accused of breaking a code of conduct as a member of parliament due to she promoting her husband’s business on social media.
According to Ras Mubarak, a former member of Parliament for the Kumbungu constituency, the laws that regulate members of parliament bar Ursula from endorsing a private company.
“My philosophy is that my money is my money and your money our money. It is the duty of the husband to give chop money (housekeeping money). There is nothing wrong with that. Whether I promote him or not, whatever money he gets, we’ll share,” she said on Asempa FM.
