- The NDC minority in Ghana’s parliament are calling on President Akufo-Addo to sack Otiko Djaba
- The minority says the face-off between the Otiko Djaba and Bugri Naabu is a disgrace to governance
The minority in parliament says they have been vindicated for its earlier opposition to the appointment of Gender Minister, Otiko Djaba as a Minister of State.
The minority in a press statement released Tuesday charged President Nana Akufo-Addo to call his minister and the NPP’s Northern regional chairman to order.
The statement signed by the minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu noted that they expect a swift action from President Akufo-Addo to confirm that he is on top and anchorage of issues.
“As matters stand now, the Minority stands vindicated for its earlier opposition to the appointment of Otiko Djaba as a Minister of State. We demand an action from the President now else his inaction will confirm the view in the public domain that this is a double standard and substandard government.”
The NDC also claim the duo have brought shame to the executive and the leadership of Nana Akufo-Addo government and NPP.
The NDC further added that the pronouncement by the two NPP executives should also be investigated and action taken by the police.
“Mr Naabu’s allegations have widespread implications for the delivery of justice in the matter of the murder of the Upper East Regional Chairman.
“In any true democratic system, Mr Naabu’s pronouncement should have elicited immediate action from state actors especially the Ghana Police and President Akufo Addo,” the statement added.
Ms. Djaba has been at loggerheads with the governing New Patriotic Party’s Northern regional chairman Bugri Naabu, resulting in exchange of invectives at each other.
Djaba had an altercation with Mr Naabu last Friday in Tamale after the NPP national women's organiser's meeting with some women was disrupted by the NPP regional chairman.
