The Minister for Communication and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu Ekuful, has been honoured with the “Excellence in Governance” award at the 7th Annual Ghana Women of the Year awards.
Her ministry in a Facebook post stated that the award is in recognition of her driving Digitalisation in Ghana as well as her role as a Minister for Communications and Digitalisation which has birthed several initiatives and innovations.
She is quoted to have said, “to whom much is given, much is expected. I stood on the shoulders of many women to get to where I am and it’s incumbent on us also to provide shoulders for others to lean on.
“It hasn’t been easy, we have suffered but it’s all part of the cost we have to pay and it’s worth it to find young girls whose lives have been transformed under the various initiatives”.
She dedicated that award to her husband whom she says has had to endure “vituperations” as a result of her appointment.
The award scheme was organised by Glitz Africa.
