“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.

“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.
