Kayayei Won’t Demonstrate If Otiko Is Refused By Parliament- President

President of the National Association of Head Potters, Adiza Zongo Pioneer, has rebuffed reports that over 5000 of her associates are gearing up to take to the streets should Parliament fail to approve the nomination of Ms. Otiko Afisa Djaba as Gender, Children and Social Protection Minister.

In an interview with Peacefmonline.com, Adiza Zongo Pioneer posited that members of her association are not interested in marring the early administration of President Nana Akufo-Addo by staging demonstrations that could have negative bearing on government.  

According to her, just like other minister designates who have had to justify themselves before the vetting committee, Ms. Otiko Afisa Djaba, should be given the space to do same.

Livid head potters from the three northern region have accused the Minority of personal vendetta.

They could not fathom why someone who has their interest at heart is being frustrated especially by Members of Parliament from the north.

They maintained Otiko Djaba’s appointment to the Gender Minister is a dream come true since according to them, she has their interest at heart.

But their president maintains that any needless demonstration now would be a form of stampede on Parliament and speak bad about the NPP.
