Former minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Hon. Otiko Afisa Djaba has resigned as the Italian High Commissioner and opted out of politics.
Otiko Djaba who seems not happy with her new position as the Ambassador Designate to Italy is quitting politics.
Hon. Afisa Djaba’s engagement in the NPP has been very instrumental.
She was once the National Women’s Organizer for the New Patriotic Party, and she contested the Bole Bamboi seat on the ticket of the NPP and lost to former President, John Dramani Mahama in 2018.
Although she was doing quite well as the minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, during her voting process in parliament, there was a boycott.
The minority legislators walked out of a voting process to approve her appointment because they collectively stated that her temperament and attitude was not fit for the position.
Hon. Otiko Djaba has probably resigned as Ambassador Designate to Italy and bowed out of politics because she may not have liked the President’s reshuffling of ministers.
Otiko Afisa Djaba (born 21 January 1962) was a Ghanaian politician and the Ambassador designate to Italy. She has three children, one boy and two girls. Her previous engagement was the National Women’s Organizer for the New Patriotic Party. She was also the former minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection
