Otiko Afisa Djaba has patched up her differences with the former President, who happens to be her cousine.
In a very informal manner, the two politicians belonging to the two biggest parties in Ghana but connected by blood, were seen laughing heartily together as they buried the hatched on the sidelines of the 41st Conference of the Youth of Gonjaland.
Hon. Otiko Djaba, the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection went ahead to call for reconciliation among youth of Gonjaland so as to help drive development in unism.
She also called on the people to bring the true essence of the death and resurrection of Christ to bare By forgiving one another.
“…that politics should not divide families. We are family first before politics. It should also not stop us from pursuing different political ideologies” she said.
It would be recalled that appearing before the Appointments Committee of Parliament as a Gender Minister Nominee, Otiko Afisa Djaba refused to withdraw her comments made against the former President John Dramani Mahama ahead of the 2016 elections.
At her vetting, Otiko Djaba said she owes the former President no apology for describing him as “wicked, evil and someone with a heart of the devil”.
But at this year’s Gonjaland Youth Conference, which was attended by high powered delegations from the two leading political parties – New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC), Hon. Djaba extended an olive branch to President John Dramani Mahama and called on all to emulate her example by reaching out “those who feel offended and asking to be forgiven”.
In attendance were; Abu Jinapor ,John Jinapor , Dominic Nitiwul, Boniface Abubakar, Bugri Naabu, Northern Regional Minister and a host of other party officers.
