The Minority NDC of Parliament has refused to assent Otiko Afisa Djaba as Minister For Gender, Children and Social Protection, following her demeanor during her vetting and her void of not pursuing National Service.
ClassFmonline has noted Alhassan Suhuyini, MP of Tamale North for saying that “If she cannot demonstrate her ability to contain her mother no matter how much of a difference exists between them, then you shouldn’t be hopeful that she will have any care of thoughts for any vulnerable person who is aged”.
However, after the Vetting Committee as a whole recommended Ms Djaba and five other vetted appointees for Parliamentary approval, the house on Friday has affirmed the other five nominees being Akoto Osei, Daniel Botchway, Samuel Atta Akyea, Ignatius Baffuor Awiah and John Peter Amewu to be Ministers, eliminating Otiko Djaba on grounds of house orders.
The house has then been adjourned to Tuesday 7th February to deliberate and vote on Otiko Djaba’s case.
Otiko Djaba’s approval is also in bad faith because Minority claims she doesn’t have a good relationship with her own mother let alone other women in Ghana, for her to head such Ministry.
“This is not a tolerant woman who will listen to a woman who is abused by a man … we are also talking about a woman lying on oath, when she said that she has seen the mother or talk to the mother” Joseph Yieleh Chireh. told Richard Sky of Citi Fm.
