Adwoa Safo sacked as Gender minister.

We have reliable confirmation that President Akufo-Addo has fired Minister Sarah Adwoa Safo with immediate effect in the areas of gender, children, and social protection.

Article 81 (a) of the constitution was followed, according to a statement made by Eugene Arhin, Director of Communications at the Presidency.

Family Problems

The fired minister, who also serves as the representative for Dome-Kwabenya in Parliament, has been missing from the chamber for a number of months and has neglected her ministerial responsibilities.

She explains her extended absence as being related to a family matter and the care she is providing for her child.

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has revoked the appointment of Hon. Sarah Adwoa Safo, Member of Parliament for Dome Kwabenya, as Minister of Gender, Children, and Social Protection, with immediate effect, according to Article 81 (a) of the Constitution.

Tik Tok Is Gone?

It’s noteworthy to note that the Dome-Kwabenya MP, who enjoys posting viral videos of herself in emotional states, on Monday removed all of her Tik Tok posts and had her account entirely canceled.

Adwoa Safo may have lost interest in continuing to serve as a minister after her failed attempt to remove Mrs. Gertrude Quashigah, the national coordinator of the school feeding program, from her position, suggested outspoken NPP MP for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong earlier this year.

Committee on Privileges recommendations

She was, however, called before the Parliamentary Privileges Committee to answer for her misbehavior, but every attempt to contact her—including through Zoom—failed because she refused to accept the invitation.

Subsequently, the Privileges Committee suggested that Adwoa Safo’s seat be declared vacant as a result of her absence from the chamber.

Parliament was therefore anticipated to decide on her position as an MP on Thursday. However, the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Alban S.K. Bagbin, delayed making a judgment until the House resumed meeting, claiming that the matter did not require speed.

Bin Bag Stalls

Before the House rose, the Speaker spoke to the members and said;

“Respected Members, I talked to the elderly woman, and I believe the advice she gave me is sound. The majority leader’s concern involves both substantive and procedural law.

I need some time to draft and present to this house a well-reasoned decision. I am unable to give you the decision right away. I shall ask this House to adjourn in the circumstances, he said.
