It appears the anger of Gender Minister Otiko Afisa Djaba towards former President John Mahama has simmered as the two have been spotted in a hearty exchange of pleasantries.

The two individuals were seen exchanging handshake amidst smiles at this year’s Gonjaland Youth Congress at Sawla on Saturday.

Madam Afisa Djaba is reported to have made some scathing comments about former President Mahama ahead of the 2016 general elections.

“He has the heart of the devil,” she had said of the former leader, describing him as someone who does not have the interest of the country at heart.

She refused to apologise for the comments when she appeared for her ministerial vetting.

Meanwhile, the former President who was given a rousing welcome at the event was also seen in a cosy mood with Defense minister Dominic Nitiwul at the event.
