Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the Majority Leader in Parliament, has announced that Dome-Kwabenya Member of Parliament (MP) Sarah Adwoa Safo will be returning to Ghana this week.
On Monday, according to the majority leader, “In the course of the week she may come down hopefully.”
“Where we are, our regulations have enough procedures to deal with some of these problems,” the Suame legislator said when asked if she would be penalised for missing more than fifteen days of Parliament. “But it depends on whatever justification she has, if it is believable.”
“That is why the instructions state that if a person is away from a meeting for more than fifteen days and is unable to present a reasonable excuse, the committee of Privileges may suggest punishment, so it all relies on the information she brings.”
Adwoa Safo is accused of destroying the government by certain members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Particularly, Michael Okyere Baafi, the MP for New Juabeng South, claims she is complicating the government’s job in Parliament.
“Adwoa Safo is to blame for all of the government’s issues.” On Kumasi’s Hello FM, he stated, “Clearly, her aim and posture reveal that she wants to undermine NPP.”
Kennedy Agyapong, the MP for Assin Central, even claimed that the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, provided him “120,000” to put into Adwoa Safo’s bank account so that she could attend to Parliamentary obligations and work for the government.
“I took the money and deposited it in the Fidelity Account,” Kennedy Agyapong raged. “Ask her personal assistant if what I’m saying isn’t true.”
“Now we are in opposition, the way Adwoa Safo is handling the party, it is clearly demonstrating that we are in opposition, and this should not be accepted at all,” he said on Tuesday, February 22 on Asaase Radio.
Kennedy Agyapong had complained about Sarah Adwoa Safo’s behavior.
The cabinet minister for Gender, Children, and Social Protection has been missing from Parliament for more than 15 days.
Before she enters Parliament, she believes she should be appointed as Deputy Majority Leader, according to Kennedy Agyapong.
“Ghanaians should anticipate her seat to be declared vacant,” Kennedy Agyapong stated when he was questioned on Adwoa Safo’s seat.
