The New Patriotic Party (NPP) branch in the Dome Kwabenya Constituency in the Greater Accra Region says constituents are not happy with their Member of Parliament, Sarah Adwoa Safo, since she has failed to show up in Parliament to represent them in over a year.
As a result, it may be a bit difficult for them to allow her to represent them again in Parliament.
Speaking in an interview with TV3‘s Richard Bright Addo on Wednesday, August 17, NPP Constituency Chairman Robert Osei Bonsu observed that the love for Ms Safo in the constituency had been unflinching, forming the basic reason she was re-elected in the last two Parliaments.
But he further observed that her third term has been very disappointing and her support within the party has significantly dwindled.
He said it has taken the hardwork of the Constituency executives to keep the party on top, lobbying for projects, even in the absence of the MP.
“We love her, that’s why we have given her three term as a Member in Parliament,” Mr Osei Bonsu said.
“But has she finished with what she is doing in the [United] States now? Is she coming back to be an absentee Parliamentarian or is she now coming back to work? It may be a bit too late for her.”
This is coming on the back of the MP’s resolve to turn her attention to the constituency to help the ruling party “break the eight”.
“Cognizant of my duties to the 75,000 constituents who elected me, this development is opportune and will afford me more time to concentrate on my Parliamentary responsibilities and Constituency engagements as well as consolidate the gains we have made as a government at the Constituency level in our quest to break the eight.”
