Bow Your Head In Shame Adwoa Safo; Resign If You Can’t Do The Job - Majority Chief Whip
Majority Chief Whip, Frank Annor Dompreh, has called out the Dome-Kwabenya MP for holding government to ransom. The Nsawam-Adoagyiri MP said his colleague MP, should bow her head in shame for frustrating government business in Parliament. She has no basis whatsoever to
behave the way she is behaving, I have been quiet, tolerant and diplomatic about this whole happening relative to Adwoa Safo, but the way it is going, she is blackmailing the entire system, which is most unfair,” he said. In an interview on Friday, he lamented how the Gender Minister who has been on
leave since August 31, 2021, is throwing a spanner in the works of government business knowing very well the 8th Parliament is hung. If the person decides to sabotage government and they care less about the effect of their action, it is difficult to control such a person,he said. Regarding reports
that the former Deputy Majority Leader wants her position back amidst other demands, Mr Annoh-Dompreh said he is unaware of any such demands since there is no official writing to confirm it. “…I don’t know what else she wants when she has been made a Minister, what else do you want? Are you
the only NPP member who has the credibility and competence to serve? She must bow down her head in shame. She is holding everybody to ransom and it is totally unacceptable, he said. The Nsawam-Adoagyiri MP said his countless efforts to reach Adwoa Safo lately, have been fruitless. When
asked what the Majority’s next line of action will be, he said, I cannot spill the beans, we will do what we have to do, which is permissible within the law and the Constitution and our Standing Orders. But people should know that there are other NPP MPs who would have to show responsibility, because
your people voted for you to represent To that end, if you are not doing that, it is an indictment on you…if you know that you cannot prosecute that agenda, you might as well bow out honourably. There is a limit to what we can do, the Majority Chief Whip said. The Majority lacks the numbers they need
currently to pass key policies like the Electronic Transaction (E-Levy) Bill, but Adwoa Safo is unwilling to play ball with government. The lawmaker has come under fire for neglecting her parliamentary duties amid speculations that she has vowed not to return until her demands are met.
Miss Adwoa Safo was last seen in Parliament in December, 2021, when she appeared in the House to dismiss claims by the Minority Caucus that she was impersonated the day before. Her action has infuriated her colleagues who have accused her of blackmailing government with a list of demands, including the Deputy Majority Leader post. This has infuriated some colleague MPs and members of the NPP who are calling for her removal.
