Adwoa Safo Versus Parliament: Latest News On Honorable Adwoa Safo

The Majority Leader in Parliament, Honorable Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has spoken once again, on the continues absent from Parliament without permission, by the Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Honorable Sarah Adwoa Safo.

Honorable Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, whiles speaking in an interview on JoyNews‘s programe 'PM Express', has revealed that, the Dome-Kwabenya Member of Parliament, may be facing Parliament’s Privileges Committee by next week.

According to the Majority Leader, “My information was that, even last Tuesday, the Speaker was going to make a pronouncement on it in the house, but I think the circumstances prevented him from so doing. I want to believe that perhaps before the House adjourns tomorrow, or maybe next week when the House sits, the Speaker may make the announcement, by referring her conduct to the Privileges Committee before we adjourn. That’s the information that the Speaker gave to me”.

Honorable Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu again revealed that, Honorable Adwoa Safo recently wrote to the Speaker Alban Bagbin; formally asking for an extension of her leave of absence in Parliament, but the request is yet to be authorized by the Speaker.

He added that, “Well, she requested from the Speaker to be given four more weeks to be absent. The four weeks I guess is ending Friday. It wasn’t granted. The Speaker told me that he had not granted that, because you (Adwoa Safo) need to be here to make the request, but this was submitted from outside, and even the first one, the first one that’s where she didn’t make a request from the Speaker. So the Speaker said he wasn’t going to accommodate that”.

According to Honorable Kyei-Mensah, "all attempts to get the Dome-Kwabenya Member of Parliament back into the House have proven futile, and thus the next line of action lies in the bosom of the Speaker".
