Speaking in an interview on GTV Breakfast Show on May 2, Otiko Djaba said her unhappiness with NPP is that, issues like what the school feeding caterers are encountering is not given prompt attention.
According to her, “When one million people give their will to you, their vote, you must do the right thing by them. it is not about politics, it’s about the development of the people and giving them the correct information.”
She said the country is in serious times and needs serious decisions, adding that things are difficult the world over, food prices and economic issues, but this notwithstanding,  leaders are put in positions to solve problems.
Against this backdrop, Otiko Djaba added that she wants “The government I believe in to sit up, it is not about breaking the eight, but development.”

However, she charged the ministers and appointees to understand that whatever position they have is a privilege which they may never get again.
“There are about 30 million Ghanaians, you have been given the opportunity to take Ghana to the next level, let’s die trying, the fight that we fought during the campaign, let us reignite it and the people of Ghana will understand that we are serious about their development and win back their trust.
The former Minister urged the government not to see criticism as shaming because it propels people to get it right, “All challenges are opportunities to get it right.”
