The Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo, has rendered an unqualified apology to the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), especially the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and other party officials.
In a video circulating on social media, Adwoa Safo explained that she was struggling with both personal and family issues during her extended absence from Parliament.
She begged for forgiveness from the NPP leadership and supporters.
Adwoa Safo was absent from her post for over a year after travelling to the United States. Her seat became vacant, with some MPs calling for her seat to be declared vacant.
She was dragged to the Privileges Committee of Parliament in 2022.
