Otiko Gjaba as diplomat is a huge mistake – Abraham Amaliba

A member of the Legal Team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Lawyer Abraham Amaliba has described the utterances of the transferred Otiko Afisa Gjaba as not fit to make her Diplomat.

Gender and Social Protection Minister, Otiko Afisa Djaba was made an Ambassador to Italy in President Akufo-Addo’s first reshuffle in his ministerial appointments.

Expressing his disappointment in the Presidents reshuffle, on Accra-based Star FM, Lawyer Amaliba noted a reshuffle is supposed to inject efficiency into government’s business but this reshuffle, he believes, has achieved otherwise.

He added some people who should have been removed all have been elevated. Citing Otiko Afisa Djaba as an example, he quizzed, “you sending Otiko to be a Diplomat? Has she got the temperament to be a Diplomat? Otiko’s utterances cannot make her a Diplomat. You don’t know what a Diplomat is? Have you seen people cut in the mold of Ambassador D.K Osei, You sending Otiko to be A Diplomat? It’s a Joke”, Mr. Amaliba added.
