Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu reveals what Adwoa Safo told him before leaving the country

The Majority leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has described as worrying the continuous absence of Dome/Kwabenya Member of Parliament (MP), Sarah Adwoa Safo.

Speaking in an interview on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', the Suame MP disclosed various conversations he had with Adwoa Safo where she explained her absence.

According to him Adwoa Safo asked permission from him to go overseas to get a new school for her kids. She was in the process of transferring them to a new school when one of the kids got injured straining his knee.

She then asked to extend her stay to get a specialist to treat her son but it was difficult to get to the specialist because of Covid.

We all thought it was time for her to come after the school transfer and treating of her son but she told us she was still working on both and it will be difficult to come to the country.

According to the Majority Leader, "what is happening is not the best . . . it’s a worrying situation especially to the government, because currently we have just a slim majority and so if one is out taking any decision it is difficult".


Meanwhile, some of the NPP MPs have blamed her for the delay in passing the controversial e-levy bill.

In reaction, Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu claims even though the bill would have been passed had she been around, "her absence is not the only reason".

Explaining further, he said: "our negotiations with the minority is also part as well as their inconsistencies. Nonetheless, if Adwoa was present, we would have the majority to pass the bill and this debate would have ended".
