Former Gender minister Otiko Djaba now a TV host

A former minister of Gender, Otiko Djaba, has popped up into the limelight after her sack in 2018 but this time, she is a TV host of a show for people with disabilities.

The vocal and energetic Otiko Afisa Djaba, the first Gender minister appointed by President Nana Akufo-Addo in 2017, only to be sacked a year later, is now a TV host.

According to a report sighted on, the longtime women's rights advocate is now the host of a show on TV3 titled "Let's Talk Ability".

When she lost her ministerial job to Cynthia Morrison in 2018, Djaba turned down an appeasement of an offer to be Ghana's ambassador to Italy.

Her excuse then was that she wanted to take care of her husband, a physically-challenged man. It is not clear although reasonable if Djaba's husband served as an inspiration for this new project.

Let's Talk Ability produced by Djaba is reportedly a talk show to give the Ghanaian society a better understanding of what People With Disabilities (PWDs) go through.

It is hoped that society would appreciate through the programme, how difficult PWD lives are and throw light on how PWDs, their carers, the community, government, NGOs, philanthropists, employers, education, health, justice and institutional providers can contribute to the development and welfare of PWDs.

Djaba, who has an experience in similar projects with Plan Ghana in the Upper West region, is hoping to bring her message home to open a national conversation.
