Member of parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Adwoa Safo, has reportedly returned to the United States after spending a short time in Ghana, according to Kwame Nkrumah Tikese, the show’s host on Okay FM.
He claims that Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensa-Bonsu told him about this during an interview.
Despite the fact that he said Adwoa Safo did not specify a return date, it is anticipated that she will travel for the Christmas season.
“She has left again; she has informed Majority Leader and Leader mentioned it during an interview with him. She will spend Christmas but until then, we do not know when she will return,” Kwame Nrkumah Tikese said on his Ade Akye Abia show Saturday morning.
After returning from the US on November 11, Adwoa Safo formally took up her parliamentary responsibilities again.
Since the 2022 budget was approved on November 26, 2021, Sarah Adwoa Safo has not been a member of the House.
The MP returned when Speaker of the House Alban Bagbin ordered on October 26, 2022, that the report of the committee formed to investigate her case and the cases of two other MPs who missed several sessions be brought before the entire house for discussion.
Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the Majority Leader, objected to the committee report’s admissibility for the house to consider, but Alban Bagbin overruled him.
“As I have noted in this ruling, the decision (sic) on not to admit a motion is the exclusive preserve of the Speaker. In view of the foregoing, the House is well within its right to receive and consider reports of the committee and make a determination arising out of the consideration.
“In the circumstances, it is my ruling that the motion was rightfully admitted and the report of the committee is subject to the consideration of the house. It goes without saying that the (sic) objection of the Majority Leader today (sic) is hereby dismissed…” he concluded his verdict.
It will be recalled that on July 29, 2022, a day after parliament adjourned its first decision to determine the fate of the Dome Kwabenya MP, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo sacked her as the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection.
In a statement, the president said the revocation of the MP’s appointment as minister was to take immediate effect.
“In accordance with article 81(a) of the Constitution, the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has revoked the appointment of Hon. Sarah Adwoa Safo, Member of Parliament for Dome Kwabenya, as Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, with immediate effect.
“The Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, Madam Cecilia Abena Dapaah, will continue to act as caretaker Minister for the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, until such a time that President Akufo-Addo appoints a substantive Minister,” the statement from the Presidency concluded.
Sarah Adwoa Safo has been in the United States of America since 2021.
However, barely two weeks following her return, she is reported to have left the country again.
