The Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu Ekuful has asked Franklin Cudjoe and Kofi Amoabeng to apologise for denigrating women.
Franklin Cudjoe, CEO of IMANI Ghana is alleged to have posted a comment on facebook, describing some ladies as ‘smelly and overused’.
The founder of UT Holdings Kofi Amoabeng, on the otherhand said in an interview on Accra FM that “you cannot even trust the people that have come out. I used to tell people that if you are a lady and come to apply for a job with a First Class and you are very beautiful, I suspect the [authenticity] of the First Class. So, we have to find a way to test whether it is genuine or not.”
Reacting to these comments on Peace FM's News @6pm bulletin Tuesday, the Member of Parliament who doubles as a gender advocate condemned the two men and asked them to retract and apologise to women.
“You don’t know these ladies yet you claim they have been overused and smelly…it is an evidence of how he (Franklin) sees women…I heard he was just joking but you can’t use such foul language on women. He should come and apologise and make sure such words don’t come from his mouth again…UT Bank’s Kofi Amoabeng also made similar comments; saying beautiful ladies who come to UT looking for employment with first class, are investigated because maybe the lady used her body… If that is what UT has been doing, they should stop otherwise we are going to take them on for discriminating against women. Kofi Amoabeng should come and apologise. What did women do to these men…why should women be so insulted…we will no longer take such insults; enough is enough” she fumed.
