The Member of Parliament (MP) for Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo says she is prepared to contest the seat again in the 2024 general elections.
The embattled MP says her decision has been made to the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The former Gender Minister made this known on Saturday, September 16, after touring her constituency.
According to her, politics is a numbers game and she has those numbers to retain her seat.
“Politics is a game of numbers, if it’s the will of God and the people want me, I will run again,” Adwoa Safo said.
Meanwhile, the Dome-Kwabenya executives of the party are insisting that they will not re-elect her as their Parliamentary Candidate.
According to them, they have had enough of her and thus want a new person to lead the party in the constituency in the 2024 general elections.
The NPP Constituency Secretary for Dome-Kwabenya, Theophilus Ansah Larbi, in a media interview said, although they accept her apology, they cannot risk losing the seat to the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“If she has rendered an unqualified apology, who are we as humans to say we are not taking it, we have accepted her apology, but what does she want us to do for her after the apology?
“Probably, if she’s interested in the seat again, then what I will say as a constituency secretary is that we are sorry.”
In a video posted on Facebook on September 14, Adwoa Safo apologised to the NPP for the controversies she caused during her extended absence from parliamentary duties.
She acknowledged her actions were unjustified and expressed regret, citing personal challenges.
She apologised to President Akufo-Addo, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, the Chief of Staff, parliamentary leadership, the party hierarchy and her constituents.
“It was not my intention to disrespect you. There was a lot going on in my life and family. I’m using this medium to plead for your forgiveness in the name of God,” she said.
Adwoa Safo’s absence from parliament was one of the most discussed topics in the country in 2022 which left the house and party divided. The discussion came on the back of her leaving the country in November 2021.
