Otiko Djaba to quit facebook

Gender and Social Protection Minister; Otiko Djaba is set to shut down her Facebook account following persisting impersonation.

According to Otiko Afisa Djaba, her impersonators whom she named as Mr Asante and Sammy Aboagye are using her name to lure people to part with money.

Victims, she said, are asked to pay monies to become beneficiaries of the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) and the School feeding programme.

Ms. Djaba speaking on The Pulse on the Joy News channel on Multi TV asked the general public to disregard Facebook messages directing them to pay monies to become beneficiaries of social empowerment programmes in her name.

“I want to use the opportunity to tell Ghanaians that there is somebody who has developed a Facebook page using my name the same Otiko Afisa Djaba, but he keeps changing his DP. He had my picture at the vetting, now he has Nana Addo and Dr Bawumia. He talks to people on the page as if it is me.

"So please people of Ghana don’t be deceived by this person. It's a fraud, it's not right. I am not the one,” she said.

She indicated that several disclaimers have been put into the Newspapers to discredit the page and she has also written officially to Facebook but the situation still persists.
