‘It’s difficult to reach Adwoa Safo as a Whip’ – Annoh-Dompreh cries out

Majority Chief Whip Frank Annoh-Dompreh has stated that reaching out to ‘absentee MP’ Sarah Adwoa Safo is proving tough.

According to him, he has had fruitful discussions with the Dome-Kwabenya MP, who is currently in the United States, on a few times, but it has been difficult to reach her recently.

The Nsawam-Adoagyiri MP stated that his colleague is blackmailing President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-entire Addo’s government system.

He told Joy News that Adwoa Safo has failed to fairly represent her constituents and that she should be ashamed for obstructing government activity in Parliament.

“It’s as hard as a whip to get to (her); we’ve chatted a number of times, but now it’s difficult,” Frank Annoh-Dompreh said.

“…I entered Parliament with her, she was lucky she was appointed a minister; an entire ministry was established for her, and then she was also named a deputy leader, what’s she talking about?” he lamented.

“She has no reason whatsoever to behave the way she is behaving; I have been quiet, tolerant, and diplomatic about this whole situation concerning Adwoa Safo, but the way things are going, she is blackmailing the entire system, which is terribly unfair, and I’m not sure what else she wants.”

“You’ve been made a minister, I don’t know what else she wants after she’s been made a Minister, what else do you want?” Annoh-Dompreh continued. Are you the only member of the NPP with the credibility and ability to serve? She had no choice but to bowed her head in humiliation. She is keeping everyone hostage, which is just unacceptable.

“I believe we’ve reached a point where she must honorably withdraw because she can’t hold us hostage indefinitely.” She must be aware that there are thousands of people who support this party, this tradition, and this administration; we cannot always be at her beck and call; she has had enough, and it is time for her to step aside so that we may progress and go forward.”

“The people of Dome-Kwabenya have not been represented,” the Majority Chief Whip continued, “for me, it is something that is current and vital to look at.” It is up to them to make the decision. I’ll do my utmost to ensure that we prosecute government business within the constraints and challenges I face as a whip…”

The MP believes that government work cannot be put off any longer, and that “we are doing everything we can; with or without her, and Inshallah, we will succeed.”

“We’re doing what we can, and it won’t be a situation where we pin all our hopes on a Member of Parliament who doesn’t care what happens to this party, a Member of Parliament who doesn’t care what happens to tradition, a Member of Parliament who doesn’t care about a government that projected her, a Member of Parliament who doesn’t care about a President who thought about you and created an entire ministry for you; we can’t rely on her discretion forever.” Frank Annoh-Dompreh said, “She must be ashamed of herself.”
