Adwoa Safo Has Refused To Speak To Me For The Past Three Months



The Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has indicated that the Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo has refused to respond to his numerous messages.

Responding to the issue of absenteeism surrounding the Dome-Kwabenya Member of Parliament, Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said Adwoa Safo has not engaged him for the past three months.

The past three months Adwoa has not been engaging me again and there’ve been numerous messages that I’ve sent to her that have gone unresponded to …” he told Benjamin Offei-Addo on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Tuesday (19 July).

“… My understanding is that the privileges committee have concluded that she has refused to avail herself; in that regard abused the offer that they have granted to her in order for her to be able to explain herself out to the privileges committee.”

Meanwhile, Adwoa Safo has said she is unfazed by attempts by some elements within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to remove her as minister and MP.

The Dome-Kwabenya MP has been under severe criticism over her continuous absence from Parliament with the Speaker of the House, Alban Bagbin denying media reports suggesting he granted her permission to stay away.

In a Facebook post to congratulate the newly-elected executives of the party, the Gender Minister said she is a victim of political witch hunting.

“In the last few months that I have been away from official duties albeit not intentionally, I have become a victim of a sustained political witch hunt by certain elements in the NPP and in Parliament to achieve their own parochial goals. This has left me asking myself if this is happening because I am a woman who for just this one time needed some time off to deal with a few personal issues which were too dear to share with the larger public.

“As a member of the party, I have served with utmost diligence (both in opposition and in government) and have at all times put the fortunes of my family at the disposal of the party. At no point in time have myself nor my family withheld anything of ours from our great party, yet today, I am conveniently being called a traitor and all manner of names with several schemes being put to play and employed to oust me from my position as MP and minister,” Safo said.

“I conclude by reiterating that, in the face of clear political hounding and vendetta by certain elements within the party and parliament against me, I have never wavered in my commitment to the ideals and creed of the New Patriotic Party and the government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to whom, I am eternally grateful,” she added.
