Minister of Gender and Social Protection Madam Otiko Afisa Djaba wants the Northern Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Daniel Bugri Naabu to return bribes in the form of goats, cows and sheep he received from persons in the region after promising of giving them appointments.
He advised him against making promises to people especially party people he knows very well he has not got the capacity to meet when the president is the sole appointing authority.
“Bugri Naabu should stop promising people positions he cannot offer. He should better return their cows, goats and monies he took from them. If Bugri Naabu wants my trouble, then trouble he will give him one”, she said.
A meeting with some women and the Gender Minister in commemoration of the International Day for Midwives at Modern City Hotel in Tamale on Friday May 5, 2017 was allegedly disrupted by Bugri Naabu and some party hoodlums over claims he had no prior notice of the event.
But Madam Otiko warned Bugri Naabu against courting his trouble wondering why he wants to use her as a cover up for his problems following his inability to meet a litany of promises made to persons seeking appointments after demanding bribes from them.
“He has gone to take goats and sheep from people and is promising them positions. I am in Tamale, I never went to Savelugu but Chairman Bugri claim I came to disrupt the confirmation of the DCE which is not even today. I am the last person he will want to have his problems with, he should be very careful. He should not lie about me to cover up for his misdeeds. If Bugri wants trouble from me, then trouble will come”, she warned.
According to her, she was in the region on a working visit on behalf of the First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo and still at a loss why the leader of the party will want to get her involved in matters that have little or no bearing to his leadership crises in the region.
