Member of Parliament(MP) for Dome Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo has rendered an unqualified apology to the New Patriotic Party (NPP), President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.


The former Deputy Majority Leader requested for leave of absence in 2021 to attend to personal issues but in a statement dated Wednesday, October 6, 2021, signed and issued by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr Eugene Arhin, it was explained that Adwoa Safo’s leave was to have ended August 31, 2021, but was further extended indefinitely.

She was subsequently stripped of her responsibilities as Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection following incessant complaints of her ineffectiveness as a lawmaker and an appointee.

Efforts by Parliament’s Privileges Committee to get the legislator to give reasons for her continued absence from the House failed to yield any positive results.

The committee had failed to achieve a consensus in its recommendations on whether absenting herself for more than the mandatory 15 days without permission warranted her seat being declared vacant.

But in a video in the possession of MyNewsGh.com, the Legislator has rendered an unqualified apology to her political party, the President and all political actors who she hurt.

It is unclear what may have triggered her latest decision but she is heard in a carefully recorded video posted on YouTube saying ” I want to render an apology to my political party, the New Patriotic Party. I also want to render an apology to the President, his Vice President, the Chief of Staff, and the entire leadership of Parliament.

Apart from the party leadership, she used the opportunity to render an apology to her constituents and all members of the New Patriotic Party in her Constituency asking that she should be forgiven because she was going through a hard time in her family.

“I am sorry, please forgive me for all that happened. All those who had hopes in me but I disappointed them please forgive me,” she said.
