The House last week deferred her approval, citing among other things, her refusal to apologise for describing former president John Mahama as “wicked” and “evil”.
Speaking on the floor of Parliament last week, the minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu said Ms. Djaba’s approval had been rejected because she lacked the required attitude and temperament to front the ministry she is to head.
152 Members of Parliament voted “YES” in favour of the approval of Madam Otiko.
The House has also approved the nominations of Joe Ghartey, Ursula Owusu, Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, Catherine Afeku, and Prof Gyan Baffour by consensus.
