The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Dome-Kwabenya Constituency, Sarah AdwoaSafo, has paid a visit to her party’s headquarters on Wednesday.
The Dome Kwabenya MP visited the party’s headquarters unannounced, at Asylum Down in Accra.
The MP held discussions with the national chairman of the NPP, Stephen AyesuNtim, general secretary, Justin FrimpongKodua and national women’s organiser, Kate Gyamfua, during her visit.
The MP was in the news last year, after failing to join the scheduled zoom meeting with the Privileges Committee of Parliament which summoned her, and some two other MPs
of the majority caucus, to answer questions about why she had been absent from the house for months without the permission of the Speaker of the House.
After absenting herself from parliament for almost a year leading to a tussle between the Majority and Minority over whether her seat should be declared vacant or not, the MP appeared in the House to resume her duties.
Earlier at a church service, MsSafo told her constituents that she was glued to her seat, despite the machinations by members of her party to have her removed from parliament, which could have triggered a by-election in the constituency.
It could be recalled that MsSafo was sacked by President Nana Akufo-Addo as Minister for Gender, Children and Social
Protection due to her long absence from official duties.
When she resumed her parliamentary seat in November last year, she told journalists in an interview that; “I feel good to be back even though today is my first day after all these months.
“I hope the subsequent days will be good. That is all I can say.” —classfmonline.com
