In an interview with Osei Bonsu (on Asempa FM, Ekosiisen program), she refutes the point made by Sir Sam Jonah about the “Culture of Silence” coming back into the country. She could not understand the premise upon which this conclusion was made.
According to her, the government has these years tolerated all dissenting views coming from every institution, Civil Society Organizations, Political divide, individuals and many more. She said, people are not talking because, there is nothing to say about the government.
In addition, she made the point that no media house was closed because they criticized government, nor any individual arrested for speaking his or her mind. There is an equal right and freedom of everyone to express his views, and there are several platforms to do so without interference from anyone.
She recalled how they sacked her from working in the Telecommunications Industry (Zain etc.), because of her political affiliation. It happened on the January 8, 2009, just a day after the swearing in of the Late President John Evans Atta-Mills.
Again, a certain Accra based Newspaper made a fabricated story about her. Her daughter came back from school crying because of some ill words used on the mother, and people are using it against the daughter. They made such story but no action was taken against them and still operating in the country.
Moreover, she reiterated the point that, the government has done well in promoting free speech and everyone must tolerate each other views. People must desist from letting people accept their views, but refused to accept counter views or suggestions.
Furthermore, she wants every Ghanaian to be Nationalistic and fight for the well-being of the country. After God, the country must come first before any political or family relations comes into the picture. Everyone should be free to speak his mind no matter the situation, to move the country forward.
