It Was Me, I Was In Parliament Yesterday – Adwoa Safo Speaks
Dome-Kwabenya MP, Sarah Adwoa Safo has said she was in parliament on Tuesday during the voting on the 2022 budget statement contrary to social media rumours that someone impersonated her in the chamber.
“I was present in this house yesterday”, she said, adding: “Mr Speaker, and to state categorically that I cannot force Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa, who is my friend on the other side, the dress the way I want him to dress and that is an insult on womanhood and so those making that noise should withdraw”.
The Dome-Kwabenya arm of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) expressed scepticism about the identity of a lady who was seen in the Dome-Kwabenya lawmaker’s seat.
Ms Safo has not been seen in public for months.
Her leave was extended by President Nana Akufo-Addo some weeks ago.
In her absence, the President has asked the Minister of Water and Sanitation, Mrs Cecilia Abena Dapaah to act as the Minister of Gender, Child and Social Protection.
