Why Otiko Afisa Djaba is bowing out from Politics...

Before the NPP National election, Akufo Addo issued a directive to all his appointees to support and vote for Freddy Blay or get kicked out from from his government, Otiko defied and ignored that directive , told Nana Addo ‘’We are not robots and cannot be pushed about like kids’’ and went ahead to support Stephen Ntim.
After the Koforidua congress, Otiko was summoned to the Flagstaff House and was queried for disobeying the PRESIDENT before Freddy Blay and John Boadu , Otiko got infiriuated and had serious exchanges with the President and Blay, she refused to be cowered into submission, out of anger she told Freddy Blay to stay out of NPP matters since he is a complete stranger in the NPP and took her bag and walked out cursing them on her way out.
Her misbehavior in front of the President really got him angry and embarrassed so he made the decision to reshuffle her out of his government completely but at that moment John Boadu quickly reminded him that Otiko was one of the few Krobo’s in the government and thus kicking her out could send bad signals to the Krobos.
The Upper East Regional Minister was the one originally penciled for the role of Ambassador to Italy but a decision was made to rather send Otiko to Italy.
Otiko was not informed of the reshuffle. She only heard her reshuffle on radio and said "This man is VINDICTIVE". She told her friends that she is not going to accept the appointment and will bow out of politics. But promised to teach Akufo Addo a lesson.
