I don’t have time for people like Gabby Otchere-Darko, he is a disturbance – Sophia Akuffo
Former Chief of Staff, Sophia Akuffo has fired back at Legal Practitioner, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko for questioning why she decided to picket at the Finance Ministry.
Gabby Otchere-Darko tweeted against the involvement of the former Chief Justice in the protest by pensioners against their inclusion in the domestic debt exchange programme.
According to Mr.Otchere-Darko on Twitter, “For a former CJ to take up a noble cause such as she did but at such late hour when all was done and for all that publicity, she owed it to herself and her social standing to have understood the issues far better than what she exhibited last Friday. She is bigger than that.”
In a sharp rebuttal on Tuesday, February 14, 2023, at the Ministry of Finance, the former Chief Justice quizzed the role of Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko in government, “Is he a member of the government? He doesn’t decide for me what I need to do and what I do not need to do.”
She further added “ It is as simple as that. I don’t have time for things like that, people like that are not important to me or to my life. He is a disturbance.”
“We are talking about people, we are talking about human beings, we are talking about people who have served this country and have served well and hard. Not easy service, when you’re not a member of government and you’re calling yourself a member of government,” she added.
The former Chief Justice first joined the group of pensioners to picket at the Finance Ministry on Friday, February 10 against their inclusion in the debt exchange.
