Members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Dome Kwabenya constituency have threatened to embark on a demonstration against their Member of Parliament, Sarah Adwoa Safo.
According to concerned constituents, the MP who also doubles as the Minister of Women, Gender and Social Protection has absented herself from Parliament proceedings and has failed to visit the constituency for so long a time that residents are starting to believe that she’s no longer interested in the affairs of the country.
The spokesperson for the group, Mr. Andy Kankam, told Accra 100.5 FM’s Midday News that the disappearance of the MP is derailing the development needs of the area since there is no ongoing development in the constituency.
He argued that the MP’s long absence from the area is a source of worry for the constituents and the country as a whole.
He said the situation where people get elected and want to lord it over the people who voted them into office will not be entertained in Dome-Kwabenya.
“We demand some modicum of respect from our MP,” he stated.
“This is not a matter of the NDC or NPP but about the development of the Constituency,” he stressed, adding that the NPP can resolve whatever issues with Adwoa Safo at the party level but “we, by right, are demanding to know the whereabouts of our MP.”
