The Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya MP, Sarah Adwoa Safo has revealed that she will return to Ghana to continue her legislative duties after her ill son has recovered.
She noted that she has neither neglected her legislative nor ministerial duties having served her constituents for the past 12 years.
“I will be returning definitely to serve my people. I lead and serve the people of Dome-Kwabenya and I have done that for the past 12 years and I know exactly what my responsibilities are and I am definitely going to do that”, she said in an interview on JoyNews on Thursday, May 26.
“As you know, my son is unwell and has to transition to school, so I have to ensure that all that is settled before I can resume my duties and that is exactly what I am doing,”
The MP stressed that she has to comply with the laws of the foreign country regarding her responsibilities as a mother “until all that is sorted out, I have to do what I have to do and then I will return to my duties.”
Speaking about her appearance before Parliament’s Privileges Committee on May 27 for absenting herself for 15 sittings without the Speaker’s permission she said no notice has been served her.
The Ranking Member on the Privileges Committee, Ricketts Kweku Hagan, has said that all three absentee MPs – Kennedy Agyapong, Henry Quartey and Adwoa Safo – have been officially written to.
“The 27th which is a Friday is Adwoa Safo, the 31st which is the following Tuesday will be Kennedy Agyapong,”.
But Sarah Adwoa Safo disclosed that “as we speak I don’t know that I have been invited. I have to be served. I am not aware any such thing has been given to me. I am just hearing it from you.”
