A private legal practitioner and a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) communications team, Beatrice Annan has described the Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu as a ‘sex machine’
The Regional Minister, while trying to discredit former President Mahama’s 24-hour economy policy, explains that men work round the clock and, by so doing, neglect their wives at night.
However, Beatrice Annan stated on a panel discussion on Accra-based Metro TV that the minister’s views were borne out of his status and the perks that come with it, further accusing him of objectifying women.
“He is on government payroll, he gets per diem, he has a Land Cruiser, so he is thinking about sex and objectifying women.
“The young people of this country cannot even have an erection because they don’t have jobs and if you don’t have a job, you would not even be thinking about sex. Romance without money is like a bother,” she bemoaned.
Mahama, the 2024 NDC flagbearer, recently proposed a 24-hour economy which he says would contribute to economic growth and job creation, especially for the youth.
However, his biggest contender for the 2024 presidential election, Dr Bawumia who is the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party has argued that the policy lacks creative thinking.
