Former Minister of Gender and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba, has announced her retirement from active politics.
Otiko Djaba made her announcement after turning down the chance to be Ghana’s ambassador to Italy, a job handed to her in the latest Presidential reshuffle.
Otiko was moved from the Gender Ministry and appointed Ghana’s ambassador designate to Italy, but has turned down that job.
According to her, she has to look after her ex-husband, who has been the victim of a stroke for the past six years.
“I cannot abandon him now” Djaba told the Daily Graphic.
Aside turning down the job she’s also decided to step down from the fray of politics and “relax and enjoy my family”.
Djaba has informed the President of her decision to turn down his new appointment.
