Gender and Social Protection Minister Madam Afisa Otiko Djaba has indicated that she will file an official complaint with the party about the conduct
Gender and Social Protection Minister Madam Afisa Otiko Djaba has indicated that she will file an official complaint with the party about the conduct of Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Daniel Bugri Naabu.
According to the minister, the matter cannot be swept under the carpet after he reportedly led some hoodlums to disrupt a programme organized by the gender ministry at Modern City Hotel in Tamale.
“As a gender activist, I will file a complaint with the party over his conduct because he cannot come and disrupt a programme like that and left off the hook”, she revealed.
The minister after the incident is reported to have accused the NPP Chairman of receiving bribes from persons in the region in return for positions and therefore saw her presence in the area as a threat to his underhand dealings.
But she advised him to return bribes in the form of goats, cows and sheep he received from such persons as well as cautioned 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.
Madam Otiko warned Bugri Naabu against courting her 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.
