As everyone is aware, Minister of State and Member of Parliament Sarah Adwoa Safo is a popular in Ghana.
We also know that Hon. Safo deserves some form of discipline for her ongoing absences from parliamentary proceedings and from her ministerial duties.
We were unaware that she would suffer abuse from some Ghanaians, including members of her own party, and that the President would ultimately remove her from office.
There is little question that Honorable Sarah Adwoa Safo, the NPP Member of Parliament for the People of Dome-Kwabenya Constituency, would soon exact retribution on the president and the New Patriotic Party after receiving numerous insults from her own party members and ultimately being fired.
Hon. Adwoa Safo, who served as the MP for Dome-Kwabenya, was asked to appear before the privileges committee of parliament as a result of her continued absence from the chamber without authorization, but she has not yet shown up. This is something we were unaware of.
Additionally, in accordance with Ghanaian law, the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, removed her from her position as Minister of Gender, Children, and Social Protection due to her continued absence from it (although parliament has not yet made a decision regarding her behavior).
Even though it caused a lot of controversy among Ghanaians, the bulk of her party’s (NPP) members backed her expulsion.
Adwoa Safo’s continued absence from the House, according to the NPP Majority, is having an impact on government business in parliament. The NPP Majority is currently lobbying hard for her removal from parliament.
They contend that her continued absence amounts to a vacation of duty, and that removing her from the floor will allow a special election to be held in her district to fill the vacancy.
Because of the historic hung parliament that President Nana Addo faced during his second time in power, I don’t believe that (137 seats for NDC and 137 also for the ruling NPP, plus 1 Independent MP).
Despite the independent MP’s decision to work with the NPP (providing the NPP 138 votes), the most recent circumstances in the House appear to be different, which is why the NPP is vehemently pushing to remove the absentees so that a serious member can take their place.
The Assin North MP has been ordered by the Supreme Court to stop attending parliament due to ongoing legal difficulties, according to the most recent update in parliament, which reveals that the NDC is down to 136 members.
One thing that the NPP and President Nana Addo might not be aware of is that… Speaker Alban Bagbin has a wealth of parliamentary expertise, and he is a “wizard” when it comes to calculating the quorum on the floor of the chamber.
