The war of words between New Patriotic Party (NPP), Northern Regional Chairman, Daniel Bugri Naabu and Gender, Children and Social Protection, Minister Otiko Afisa Djaba seems to have abated after a reported bonding of the two personalities to put up good behavior or suffer sanctions from the party.
The president is said to have summoned the two to the Flagstaff House for consensus to be reached and impress upon them to desist washing dirty linen in public while the party’s council of elders are also said to have indefinitely bonded the pair.
Naabu’s beef is Madam Djaba coming to the region to hold meetings without recourse to the party chairman in the region.
In the heat of the moment, Bugri Naabu had alleged among others that Madam Djaba was insolent and a lesbian. The Gender Minister had also thrown her own salvo alleging the regional chairman was receiving goat and cows from folks promising them jobs submitting Mr. Naabu’s home was akin to an abattoir.
It was this submission which provoked Mr. Naabu to allege that a similar meeting Madam Djaba held with now Upper East Regional Minister, Rockson Bukari led to the acid attack and death of late Upper East Regional Chairman of the NPP, Adams Mahama in 2015.
But Mr. Rockson Bukari feeling defamed demanded Mr. Naabu retract his statement and apologise to him for which solicitors for Mr. Naabu released a statement claiming their client’s death allegation was a “a slip of tongue” adding “I write to sincerely and unreservedly retract wholly my comments about your client in an interview I granted Accra-based Radio XYZ.”
“I note, most regrettably that those rather unfortunate comments have since Monday 8th May, 2017, gained wide publicity and may have implications for an ongoing trial in the High Court.”
Madam Djaba has since apologised to Ghanaians:
“Because I am a woman he feels he can bully me…but I apologise to all Ghanaians for what happened,” she rendered adding “I don’t understand why he will do that…it was totally out of order [but] I have apologised to my party members and the people of Ghana for that.”
