The former Minister of Gender, Child and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba has trashed claims on social media that she has attacked the NPP and people jabbing NDC running mate.
“That is the character of the NPP. You can ask Ursula. They hate to see women at the height of decision making. What didn’t they do to Hajia Alima? And you have a Bush man like Wontumi as the Chairman of Ashanti Region spewing rubbish about a whole professor? Such a kambooo kraatchi. I am happy I left such a useless party. It’s time for Change and Ghanaians must vote them out”. This was the report circulated on social media.
In a statement issued by her, she stated that the publication is false indicating that she has never said nor issued such comment.
“I demand an immediate retraction of the publication and apology for the embarrassment caused” she noted.
According to her, she’s seeking the advice of lawyers to ensure that those who perpetuated that false publication will be brought to book.
