Tensions are high in parliament over whether or not the minister designate for gender and social protection, Otiko Djaba, be approved by the appointment committee.

It would be recalled that Otiko Djaba had revealed before the vetting committee that she was not in Ghana for her national service.

Minority leader in parliament, Haruna Iddrisu argued that the minister designate not doing her national service disqualified her for the position of public service holder.

“It is also a national obligation. She, in her answers, was forthright and was candid with the committee that ‘I have not done national service’. Therefore, can she work in the public service of Ghana and hold the high office of a minister of state?,” Haruna quizzed.

Meanwhile majority members in parliament are arguing that Otiko Djaba not doing her national service should not serve as an end to her political career.
