If I fail to be the best mum, I will fail my ministry – Adwoa Safo

 Sarah Adwoa Safo, the Member of Parliament for Dome Kwabenya, has compared her role as a mother to that of the country’s Minister of Gender, Children, and Social Protection.

She believes that if she ignores her responsibility as a mother, she will fail as a Minister of State.

Madam Safo stated that she has been away due to family issues beyond her control in an exclusive appearance on JoyNews’ The Pulse on Thursday.

“As a mother, I’m keeping focused and doing what I need to do.” I want to be the best mother possible.

“And my Ministry takes care of children,” she told Blessed Sogah on Thursday, “so if I fail my family, I have failed my Ministry and I have failed the people of Ghana.”

Despite the fact that she has been missing for a long time, the legislator stated that she will return to her duties as a Member of Parliament and Minister once her kid is well and healthy.

“I will undoubtedly return to help my people.” I have been leading and serving the people of Dome-Kwabenya for the past 12 years, and I am fully aware of my responsibilities, which I will fulfill.

“As you are aware, my kid is ill and must return to school, so I must ensure that everything is in order before I can start my duties, which I am doing,” she explained.

President Akufo-Addo renewed the Gender Minister’s leave of absence from office on October 6, 2021.

The MP for Dome-absence, Kwabenya’s which she requested for personal reasons, was set to terminate on August 31, 2021.

However, the former Minister of Procurement was unable to resume his duties and requested an extension. It did not specify when she would return, though. “In her absence, President Akufo-Addo has asked Cecilia Abena Dapaah, Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, to operate as caretaker Minister until further notice,” the Presidency said.

The member was chastised earlier this year for failing to perform her Parliamentary duties, prompting suspicion that she has pledged not to return until she is granted a leadership role in the House.

Madam Safo last appeared in Parliament in December 2021, when she appeared in the House to refute allegations that she had been impersonated by the Minority Caucus.

She hasn’t returned to the Chamber since. Her colleagues have accused her of blackmailing the administration with a list of demands, including the position of Deputy Majority Leader.

This has enraged some NPP members and colleagues, who are asking for her dismissal.

Meanwhile, Joseph Osei-Owusu, the First Deputy Speaker, has stated that the Majority Caucus does not consider Dome-Kwabenya MP Sarah Adwoa Safo in its deliberations.

All attempts to persuade the absentee MP to return to the House, according to the Bekwai MP, have failed.

As a result, the Majority in Parliament has decided to conduct legislative business without consulting the Dome-Kwabenya MP in the future.

“In our plan, we have taken it as going to rescue a kidnapped person, you believe she is dead, but if you go and she is alive, then it is God’s favour, and it adds to your gains,” Mr Osei-Owusu said on Kumasi-based Pure FM. So, for the time being, we don’t consider her a member of our team,” he explained.

The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has conceded that the absence of the Dome-Kwabenya MP has a negative impact on the party and government.
