The Parliament of Ghana under the leadership of Rt. Alban Bagbin is expected to rule on the fate of Dome-Kwabenya MP, Sarah Adwoa Safo tomorrow October, 26.
Before Parliament went on recess in July, Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin deferred his ruling on whether the Dome-Kwabenya seat should be declared vacant or not following her failure to honour a meeting by the Privileges Committee on her continuous absence from Parliament.
The is among three members of Parliament who were called before the Privileges Committee for being absent from parliamentary duties, without any reason, beyond the permissible period.
Even though the other members like Kennedy Agyapong, MP for Assin Central, and Henry Quartey, MP for Ayawaso West, appeared before the committee, the Dome-Kwabenya legislator failed to honour the summons.
She attributed her long absence from Parliament to family issues, saying, among others, that her son was unwell.
President Akufo-Addo on July 28, 2022, dismissed Sarah Adwoa Safo from office as a minister of state.
A press statement issued by Eugene Arhin, the Director of Communications at the Presidency announced the decision of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to revoke her appointment as Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection.
