Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential hopeful, Stephen Atubiga is of the view that the immediate past Gender, Children and Social Protection Minister is right to decline president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s ambassadorial position.
He described her dropping from the ministerial list and subsequent reassignment as an ambassador as a demotion of a kind.
“Otiko Djaba being moved as a minister to an ambassadorial position is a demotion because she is going to work under someone and looking at the relationship she has with the President, I don’t think she is happy“, he asserted.
“I think she is standing out for herself and saying that she cannot be used and dumped. She feels dumped and that is why she had to quit and I think she has a case,” he said on Accra-based radio, Neat FM.
President Akufo-Addo after reshuffling some members of his government for the first time, designated Madam Otiko Djaba as Ghana’s Ambassador to Italy.
But the former minister has announced she would rather spend time taking care of her ex-husband who has been down with a stroke rather take up the ambassadorial job.
