It appears the friendly relations between former President John Mahama and Minister of Gender and Social Protection Otiko Afisa Djaba seems to have been restored as both were seen in a hearty mood at the 2017 Gonjaland Youth Congress at Sawla in the Northern region.
Prior to the 2016 general election, Otiko Afisa Djaba is reported to have made some unsavory comments about former President Mahama.
She said “John Mahama and the NDC are very wicked, incompetent and desperate and do not deserve another four years in office. The eight years of economic mismanagement is enough and I encourage Ghanaians to say no to the NDC at the December 7 polls and bring in Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.”
Many found Otiko Djaba’s comments disrespectful including a section of Parliament during her Ministerial vetting.
She refused to withdraw her comments made against the former President.
Meanwhile, at the 2017 Gonjaland Youth Congress at Sawla, Mahama was seen having a chat with Otiko Djaba and Minister of Defense Dominic Nitiwul at the event.
