Otiko’s question deferred to Friday

Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba’s question had to be moved to Friday when she finally appeared before the floor of the House on Wednesday June 27, 2018.

According to Majority Leader there were some mixed up in the answers provided hence would not allow for the appropriate follow up questions to be asked.

The Minister who was initially held up on an assignment appeared on the floor later in the day, and noted that the answer to the question being asked was not correct and wanted to provide the House with the right answers for it to be advertised.

Member of Parliament for Afram Plains North, Betty Nana Efua Krosbi Mensah wanted to know steps being taken by the Gender Ministry, to curb child labour within the Afram Plains stretch of the Volta Lake.
Majority Leader Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu proposed for the question to be taken on Friday and was upheld by the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu.
