Sarah Adwoa Safo, the MP for Dome-Kwabenya, has been absent from the nation, according to John Boadu, the General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He claimed that her absence from Parliament had caused a lot of government business to come to a halt.
Mr. Boadu’s revelation comes amid a recent torrent of insults on the lawmaker by some of her colleagues.
John Boadu, speaking on Joy FM in Accra, stated that without her, they would not be able to approve crucial government measures in the house.
“A lot of decisions that should have been made a long time ago [haven’t been made], and I’m sure you’ll bring up E-levy right away.”
“However, there are many aspects of government operations that must be modernized. On Tuesday, he remarked, “You never know when the NDC [National Democratic Congress] would insist that we put it to a vote, and if we miss one MP, it means that particular government initiative will be stalled.”
Mr Boadu further stated that the aspirations of Dome Kwabenya for the position of Deputy Majority Leader surprised the party leadership.
“It’s not like she was dumped in the middle of nowhere.” He told Evans Mensah, “She’s been made a Minister, and she’s working, and we’ve never received any negative complaints at all, so it comes as a surprise to some of us.”
All options are currently on the table, according to Mr Boadu, including invoking the constitutional clause that allows her to be removed as a member of parliament and her seat declared empty.
“We’re still trying to figure out what we’re thinking about.” I’m attempting to consider a variety of other possibilities in order to persuade her to join us. “There are other methods that can be used if she doesn’t,” he said.
In December 2021, Adwoa Safo was last seen in Parliament.
