A reliable deep throat source in the Flag Staff House, the seat of the Nana Akufo Addo government, has revealed to the Statesman that Mr Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, the right hand man of the President, wants the Genda Minister Madam Otiko Afisa Djaba sacked from government following her embarrassing revelation of goat bribe-taking for local appointment by Mr Bugri Naabu.
Ms Djaba who also doubles as the National Women Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party was reported to have been attacked by the Northern Regional Chaimen of the same party Mr Bugri Naabu on Friday for allegedly organising a meeting of women in the region and appointing Gonja women to the School feeding programme without the approval of Mr Naabu.
Speaking to the Press after disrupting and ending the Minister's meeting, Mr Naabu said "the Minister has no right to come to the region and call a meeting without asking first and formor asking the regional authority to do that",
Feeling peeved by the actions of Mr Naabu Madam Otiko Djaba went on radio and accused the former of having received goats, sheep and cows in return for positions he offered to persons wanting to be appointed by President Akufo Addo,
Incensed by the scandalous nature of the Minister's revelations our source disclosed on strict condition of anonymity that Mr Otchere-Darko summoned his social media attack dogs to unleash venom on Madam Djaba. In the process he was said to have said the this (the careless revelations by the Minister) is the outcome of a mistaken view held at the outset that former President Kufuor's prodigies can be trusted.
He is said to be fuming in anger and calling key persons in government to agree with him that the woman must be sacked.
For now it is unclear what President Akufo Addo is disposed to doing. It is clear howrver that the embattled minister will at least be ostracized in the next fours years from the corridors of power if Gabby does get her sacked.
