The Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba, has apologised to the President and the Ghanaian people for her conduct in her recent fracas with the NPP’s Northern Regional Chairman, Bugri Naabu.

Djaba, however, refused to apologise to Bugri Naabu, who physically disrupted a meeting Djaba was holding in the Northern Region because he was upset she held a meeting of party women without his permission.

In response, Djaba made wild allegations against Naabu, claiming he was selling positions for bribes. Her conduct has been widely criticised, leading to her apology.

“It was totally out of order and I apologise to Ghanaians for what happened. I want to use this opportunity to apologise to all Ghanaians, but it is a lesson to each other and we need to respect each other and we need to respect women,” Otiko said.

Djaba, speaking on Joy TV Tuesday, said she had gone to see the President to render to him the apology. She however pointedly refused to Bugri Naabu, insisting her disrespected her.

“I think that we need to respect women in this country 60 years on in Ghana… I felt disrespected by him and if it were a man he wouldn’t have done that,” she added.
