Adwoa Safo, who first assumed her parliamentary role in 2012, publicly expressed her regrets over the past week, extending apologies to the President, Vice President, and the NPP leadership for actions that impacted the party.
During her absence of nearly a year, a void emerged both in Parliament and at the Ministry of Gender, Children, and Social Protection, where she held the position of Minister.
Following a constituency tour, Sarah Adwoa Safo shared with journalists her decision to seek re-election. She emphasized the role of public support and divine will in her decision, stating, “Politics is a game of numbers, if it's the will of God and the people want me, I will run again.”
The NPP has acknowledged and endorsed the public apology offered by the MP. Haruna Mohammed, the Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, described the apology as a positive step that contributes positively to the party's reputation.
“She has done something positive, and the party welcomes her apology,” remarked Haruna Mohammed.
However, not all NPP executives within the Dome-Kwabenya constituency share the same sentiment regarding the apology. Some have expressed scepticism, viewing it as a habitual gesture.
The constituency Secretary for Dome-Kwabenya, Theophilus Larbi, has even suggested that Adwoa Safo's re-election as the parliamentary candidate in the next general elections could potentially have an adverse impact on the party's prospects in the constituency.
