Sister of former Minister of Gender, Child and Social Protection, Joyce Bawa Mogtari, says President Nana Akufo-Addo disrespected her.
Aide to former president John Mahama, Joyce Bawa Mogtari says Akufo-Addo was unjust to her sister, former Minister of Gender, Child and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba.
Joyce Bawa Mogtari condemned the President, saying her sister was disrespected when she was reshuffled.
“I actually feel it was great injustice because I do know the sacrifice [and] the level of commitment that she [Otiko] put into that job, the extent she went to serve the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and I will always say that irrespective of whatever their reason for reshuffling is, I think that was a great travesty of political justice,” she stated.
She added that her sister was dedicated and worked hard as the Gender Minister and in even in bringing the NPP to power to have been treated that way.
“I don’t want to proffer reasons for what qualifications President Akufo-Addo felt he needed; that is beyond my being, but I do think when a woman has worked as hard as she did, has sacrificed as much or even more to bring your party to power, I think some level of respect, some modicum of respect is required,” Mogtari told Class FM.
Otiko Afisa Djaba and Joyce Bawa Mogtari are related to the former president John Dramani Mahama.
According to the paramount chief of the Akyem Abuakwa area, it is only when government is able to spread the ministries evenly across the 16 regions that Ghana will develop properly and also boost development.
