Debate Settled: Minority Left Surprised As Adwoa Safo Walks To Take Her Sit In Parliament

The Majority and Minority sides today, Wednesday, December 1, 2021 clashed in the Chamber of Parliament. It can be recalled that yesterday the Majority rescinded an earlier decision of the rejection of the 2022 budget. Another motion was raised and 137 MPs on the side of the NPP voted to approve the budget. Many Ghanaians received this with mixed reactions as many were wondering what their elected representatives were doing and playing hide and seek.

In Parliament today, Haruna Iddrisu, Minority Leader referred the First Deputy Speaker to the illegality that happened yesterday when he decided to put aside an earlier ruling and go ahead to approve the budget. According to Haruna Iddrisu, it was a breach of Standing Order of 109 and 48 for the Deputy Speaker to add himself and claim a quorum had been formed.

Haruna Iddrisu called for yesterday’s ruling to be rescinded. He raised a motion and appealed to the sitting speaker to drop the ruling of yesterday. “Even adding yourself to the quorum yesterday is a betrayal of our standing orders” Haruna Iddrisu said.

As Haruna Iddrisu spoke, Adwoa Safo, MP for Dome Kwabenya walked in much to the cheers of the NPP MPs in the house. the Minority could only look on as the young MP walked majestically to her seat. Later Haruna Iddrisu welcomed Adwoa Safo and continued to demand that the motion to rescind yesterday’s decision be carried on.

Adwoa Safo has been a center of controversy since yesterday as the Minority insisted that someone had impersonated the MP so the Majority get their 137 votes cast. This caught so much attention with many raising questions because Adwoa Safo had been out of the country for some time. Her presence today has settled any debate as to whether she was the one seen in the chamber yesterday.
