Dome Kwabenya lawmaker, Sarah Adwoa Safo, has won the heart of her political party leadership with her recent works in her constituency. This is after she abandoned her role as then Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection and also her constituency, for over a year.

The Majority in Parliament where she belongs called for her seat to be declared vacant for a by-election to elect a new representative but the motion was turned down by the Speaker.

After over a year-long break, Adwoa Safo returned and has now declared her intention to contest the seat again after apologising to the rank and file of the party for what she did, also indicating that the reception from her constituents shows they still need her.

“I take this opportunity in the name of God to beg you all,” Ms Adwoa Safo said in Twi in a video broadcast posted on Facebook Thursday, September 14, 2023.

“My regional executives, my constituency executives led by Chairman Bonsu, the headquarters of the New Patriotic Party, the General Secretary and the National Chairman and your executives, I beg you all.

“Supporters and sympathisers who love the party and love me and had great confidence in my constituency, I beg you all. Whatever has happened forgive me my sins,” she pleaded.

Her issue has brought divisions within her constituency where some are saying she shouldn’t be given another opportunity for abandoning them with others saying she deserves another chance.

Reacting to her issue on TV3’s Hot Issues Sunday, October 29, 2023, the General Secretary of the NPP, Justin Kodua Frimpong, said the party leadership is now content with her works in the constituency despite what happened some time ago.

“Yes, issues happened in the past and she came back to apologise to the party and now I can tell you that she is doing her work as Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya. So, so far as the party is concerned now, currently we are satisfied with what she is doing as a Member of Parliament for her constituency,” Mr. Kodua indicated.

Mr Kodua Frimpong said “everything” is fine between the NPP and Madam Adwoa Safo but he insists the delegates will have the final say in February, 2024.

“The issues that happened belong to the past but at the end of the day, the party will have internal elections, so it is up to the constituents in her constituency to decide,” he said.
