Minister for Children, Gender and Social Protection, Ms. Otiko Afisa Djaba insists her funky hairstyle is apt for her ministry.
She explained that the Rihanna-inspired hairstyle is an embodiment of the men, woman, and children whom she represents at the Ministry.
Madam Otiko Djaba got the media buzzing when her hairstyle became topical during her vetting in Parliament.
Many including Members of Parliament argued that it was inappropriate for a Minister of State to keep such funky hairstyle.
But on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Wednesday, the Gender Minister expressed shock at the precious time used in discussing her hairstyle.
According to her: “My hair style doesn’t affect the price of kenkey; my hairstyle does not affect poverty; my hairstyle is a winning hairstyle, it encourages the young people”.
The Swagger Mama”, as she’s fondly called, maintained that her Rihanna inspired hairstyle brings the youth very close to her since they see her to be very youthful.
“People call me the swagger mama; they enjoy me because I am young at heart and when I hit the campuses they’re happy,” she added.
Madam Otiko Djaba said she remains focused and not perturb by the communist inferior tactics being adopted by her detractors.
“Instead of demonizing me, they should come and help me executive all the juicy policies to make life easy for our women and children” she added.
