April 19, 2022

Personal aid to the Member of Parliament for Dome/Kwabenya, Nana Dubin Kwapong has assured that her boss, Sarah Adwoa Safo would avail herself when the Privileges Committee of Ghana’s Parliament extends invitation to her.

As to whether he had spoken to her about the Speaker, Rt. Hon Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin referring her and two other lawmakers to the privileges Committee, he said “I would not want to speaker to her on that, but when invited she would honor it”.

“And whatever has kept her away from her parliamentary duties would be shared with the Committee, then we would take it from there”.

As to whether they are in touch with the Majority Leadership in Parliament, Nana Dubin confirmed in an interview that he is in touch with the Majority Leader Osei-Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu and he had apologized to the Dome/Kwabenya MP for comments made by the first Deputy Speaker Joseph Osei-Owusu,  where certain comments were passed about my boss during an interview with a radio station in Kumasi, where he alleged that the Dome/Kwabenya MP had told the Majority Leader not to send message to her and not to call her.

“I was with the Majority Leader because I was sent by Sarah Adwoa Safo to him, Majority Leader apologized and said he has not made such a comment to Joseph Osei- Owusu for him to go on radio to make such a comment. So if she was not in touch with him I am not sure I would be asked to go to him for us to have some discussion regarding her absence from Parliament”, Nana Dubin Kwapong stated.

According to him, her boss is in touch with the Majority Leader, but cannot speak to the entire leadership. “She is in touch with the Majority Leader, but the entire leadership, I do not know, but so far as the Majority Leader is concerned I know she is in touch with him, there is communications”.

When questioned on the MPs message to constituents who are worried about her absence, he noted that they should expect her soon adding she has not left them alone as is being portrayed. “As a woman it is not necessary everything that can be put out there in the public domain but in good time just as she has natured a relationship with them over the past two terms and in her third term as an MP she would be back and that relationship would continue”.

And again, together they can find solutions to the many teething problems confronting them in the constituency but it is something “very germane that has kept her away for so long but she would be back to continue with her work as their MP”, he said.
