'Otiko's closeness with Mahama raising loyalty suspicions'

A Deputy Women’s Organiser of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Tina Mensah says her boss, Otiko Djaba’s familial connections with President John Mahama, raises suspicions about her loyalty to the NPP.

Tina Mensah who is contesting Otiko Djaba for the Women’s Organiser position told XYZ Breakfast Show host Moro Awudu on Thursday that her boss is better off excusing herself from the party.

“…If perceptions are there and you think it’s strong, it is better you stand aside”, Tina Mensah suggested to her boss, whom she claims has been fighting her ever since she got into that position.

“…Otiko is connected to Mahama; Otiko is Mahama’s first cousin. She has been saying it everywhere and what the people are saying is that no serious country goes to war with a leader having blood relations with the enemy”, she clarified.

Djaba is currently fighting off suspicions that she is an NDC mole in the NPP. She told the same XYZ Breakfast Show on Wednesday that her opponents are using the mole smear to run her campaign down.

She referred to her detractors as “witches and wizards” who are destroying the party.

Djaba’s arch rival and Deputy, Tina Mensah has promised to exercise the witches and wizards that her boss is complaining of, when she nudges her off the Women’s Organiser seat after the NPP’s April 12, 2014 annual national Delegates’ Congress in the Northern regional capital Tamale.
