School Feeding Coordinators Trade Insults Over Naabu & Otiko
Two Regional Coordinators of the Ghana School
Feeding programme traded insults in a heated
argument Thursday over the confusion that has
gripped the programme in the Northern region, as
discord between Madam Otiko Djaba and Bugri Naabu

Ultimate News has intercepted several voice clips
of verbal exchanges between Madam Aku Sika
Nkansah, the coordinator for Volta Region and
Felicia Tetteh, Northern region coordinator, which
was triggered by insults on the Northern region
chairman of the NPP, Bugri Naabu.

Madam Aku was heard loudly raging against Bugri
Naabu, tearing him down by calling him unprintable
names in a series of voice recordings on a
platform for all the ten coordinators of the
The episode was sparked by a press conference
organized by a group of purported zonal
coordinators accusing the Northern regional
chairman of being behind the chaos in the Northern
region and asking him to stay off matters of the
programme in the region.
In one of the voices, Madam Aku Nkansah blamed the
chairman for all the challenges the programme
currently faced in the Northern region. She called
Bugri a “senile” and said she should be allowed to
deal with Bugri Naabu in a way that would surprise
President Akufo- Addo himself.
“I beg of you, someone must send me Bugri Naabu
personal number so I can call him to order and
tell him where his weight can be – not on Otiko
Djaba. Someone should allow us to go and tell Nana
what we feel about Bugri Naabu. Bugri Naabu has
touched fire. I will deal with him if no one
does,” she said.
She went on with her unrestrained tirade and
attempted to robe in her colleague in the Northern
region, suggesting Madam Felicia was plotting with
Bugri Naabu to destroy Otiko Djaba.
“If Bugri Naabu wants to get dirty, he should go
to that Felicia”.
This attack on the Northern regional coordinator
courted her dramatic response, who also went
berserk firing back and calling Madam Aku Sika
“If there is an issue, as grown as you are, you
don’t come in with more insults. You don’t take
sides, we look for a way to create peace. I’m so
highly disappointed in you,”
In what began as a protest by unsatisfied party
supporters, the chaos in the School Feeding
programme in the Northern region has become
A league of youth and women groups have been

programme to broker peace exacerbated the

from the seat of government also couldn’t mend the
