A Zongo youth group of New Patriotic Party (NPP) from Western Region has declared full support for the approval of Minister-designate for Gender, Children, and Social Protection, Ms Otiko Afisa Djaba, saying she has not said anything wrong about former President John Dramani Mahama to apologize him.

But according to the group, former President should rather render an unqualified apology to the residents of the Northern region because he has disappointed northerners by not fulfilling their needs and not develop the area by using Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA).
A few days ago, during the vetting session, Ms. Djaba was asked by the Parliament’ Appointments committee on her comments against Mr. John Mahama that he is ‘wicked and evil’ person because of his failure to build up the three northern districts by using SADA funds.
Speaking at the press conference at Sekondi Zongo Western Region, the NPP Zongo for Change expressed that those [Minority and members of opposition Democratic Congress (NDC)] who are criticizing Ms Djaba for making negative statements about former President are not from Northern region and hence they didn’t experience the challenges and underdevelopment in the region.
The group indicated, ‘In case you are from those parts of the nation and your citizens are going toward the southern region for the job and for earning a livelihood as Kayayie, you should feel shame that they are even underage and they have to travel to another region for earning.’
