OTIKO REJECTS AMBASSADORIAL JOB, QUITS POLITICS.

The immediate past Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection Otiko Afisa Djaba has turned down her appointment as Ghana’s Ambassador to Italy. According to her, she has communicated same officially to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. In an interview with the Daily Graphic, Ms Djaba disclosed that she turned the offer down because she had resigned from active politics.
“At 56 years, I want to relax and enjoy my family and life and, therefore, I am not ready to take up the appointment as Ambassador to Italy,” she said.
Explaining further, she said she was bowing out of politics to take care of her ex-husband who has had stroke for the past six years.
“I am the one who has been taking care of him since he got sick and I cannot abandon him now,” she stated.
