The First Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei-Owusu, has stated that the NPP MP for Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo, is not counted in the Majority Caucus in Parliament.
His comments come after the lawmaker for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong accused Adwoa Safo of sabotaging the government.
Adwoa Safo, according to the maverick politician, is absent from Parliament on purpose because she was not appointed Deputy Majority Leader.
He added the Dome Kwabenya MP is seeking to be the Deputy Majority Leader before she will attend to parliament in an interview with GTV.
“She says she wants to be a Deputy Majority Leader, that woman has failed in life. A whole Minister, a cabinet Minister now demanding that she should be made a Deputy Majority Leader before she comes. She should go to hell.”
However, Joe Wise, who also serves as a lawmaker for Bekwai, claims that all attempts to re-elect Adwoa Safo have failed.
Speaking on Kumasi-based Pure FM, he said, “in our strategy, we have taken it as going to rescue a kidnapped person, you presume she is dead, but if you go and she is alive, then it is God’s grace, and it adds to your gains, so that is our approach.”
“So as it stands now, we don’t count her as part of us,” he noted.
Osei-Owusu also divulged that Adwoa Safo told Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, not to call her phone again.
He said Adwoa Safo has indicated that she prefers to be communicated to, through text messages instead of phone calls.
“The Majority Leader used to communicate with her often, but the last time, he [Majority Leader] told me she said he shouldn’t call again, but send messages instead, which she responds to, but not phone calls,” he noted.
