Speaker of Parliament to determine Adwoa Safo’s fate tomorrow
Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin will on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, rule on the fate of Dome-Kwabenya Member of Parliament, Sarah Adwoa Safo.
Before Parliament went on recess in July, Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin deferred his ruling on whether the Dome-Kwabenya seat should be declared vacant or not following her failure to honour a meeting by the Privileges Committee on her continuous absence from Parliament.
Adwoa Safo is one of three members of Parliament who were called before the Privileges Committee for being absent from parliamentary duties without any reason, beyond the permissible period.
Even though the two other MPs, Kennedy Agyapong, MP for Assin Central, and Henry Quartey, MP for Ayawaso West, appeared before the committee, the Dome-Kwabenya legislator failed to honour the summons.
She attributed her long absence from Parliament to family issues, saying, among other things, that her son was unwell.
She was recently sacked by the president from her portfolio as Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection.
