A former Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Otiko Afisah Djaba has denied media reports of her lambasting the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, aka Chairman Wontumi.

The viral reports suggested she had condemned Chairman Wontumi for assassinating the character of Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, shortly after she was named running mate to the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama.

According to the reports, Otiko Afisah Djaba referred to Chairman Wontumi as a “bushman”, a claim she has vehemently denied.

In a statement signed and issued by herself, Otiko Afisah Djaba maintained that she has not, in any instance, made any statements to that effect about the Chairman or the NPP as party.

She is therefore demanding a retraction and apology for the said story or she may take a legal action.

“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,” she said

She was quick to add that “I demand immediate retraction of the publication; and an unqualified apology to me for the embarrassment caused me by this false publication. I am in the meantime referring the matter to my lawyers for advice.”
