Sacked deputy communications minister Victoria Hamah is bent on making US$1 million one day – an ambition she allegedly held while in active politics, which landed her in trouble.
President John Dramani Mahama fired the young politician November last year after a tape was leaked on which a voice purported to be that of the former Ablekuma West NDC parliamentary candidate was heard telling a female interlocutor that she did not intend ruining her chances in government with petty squabbles with her boss, when she had not even bagged a million dollars yet.
The two ladies, who appeared to be traveling while having the gossipy conversation, were also heard on the leaked secret audio tape unkindly condemning the then Deputy Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Rachel Appoh, for instigating bad press against her boss, Nana Oye Lithur.
“I’ll make $1m one day,” Hamah, who is currently reading Social Policy at the University of Ghana told 'Starr Drive' on Monday.
She said she is still in politics because “politics has no end. It’s about ideals that transform lives and women need to have a representation.”
Hamah stressed that women are not treated with kids’ gloves in Africa because they “have been sidelined and domesticated. Politics is really hard and harsh for women. Society is not friendly to women. It’s a reality at the work place, religious circle and even at schools.”
Hamah, who has been in the news recently over relationship issues, pointed out that “men should respect women,” adding that as a result of her good-looking physique, “naturally, I have always had attention growing up.”
