The Former Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Dr. Otiko Afisah Djaba has rubbished false publications claiming she blasted the NPP and their Ashanti Regional Chairman, Bernard Antwi Boasiako a.k.a. Chairman Wontumi over attacks on Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman, NDC’s running mate.

A Press Statement signed by Dr. Otiko Djaba and copied to the National Media Commission said “My attention has been drawn to your publication captioned “Otiko fires at Wontumi as ‘bushman’ for his anti women comment”. Let me place on record that I have not published, spoken or issued any such statement about Mr Wontumi or the NPP as attributed to me”.

Otiko is, therefore, demanding an immediate retraction of the publication; and an unqualified apology for the embarrassment caused her by the “false publication”.

She has also referred the false publication to her lawyers for advice.
