A Member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s Communication team, Mr Elikem Kotoko has said the country’s Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Ms Sarah Adwoa Safo is not fit for the position assigned her by the President.
Mr Kotoko made the comment in reaction to the allege sodomy of 19 pupils of the M/A Junior High School in the East Gonja Municipality of the Savannah Region by their teacher, a development the minister was yet to react to.
According to him, any responsible minister would have issue a statement by now to show solidarity with the victims and give them assurance the matter would be looked into and not be silence as it had been the case with the minister.
“Let even say that it is not true, it was false, let assume and you think the gender minister silence is something to be proud of. Johnnie mentions that they need psychological support they need all the various support. We expect her to even put out a release and even give out guideline that look as a ministry responsible for this we will take A, B, C, D action to order to ensure A, B, C, B and that is what a responsible minister will do and if you are here defending her definite silence then I am scandalize because I am sorry to say that not only is she a square peg in round hole,” he said.
He opined her continues silence on the matter affecting the psychological well being of the 19 boys was an indictment on her personality and only shows she and the NPP government’s insensitivity to the plight of the people and most especially the victims.
