Forgive me, it wasn’t my intention to disrespect you – Adwoa Safo begs NPP over absenteeism
The Member of Parliament for the people of Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo has asked for forgiveness from the New Patriotic Party for relinquishing her duties in Parliament when the party needed her most.
According to her, it was not her intention to disrespect the party and its leadership.
In a video posted on Facebook on Thursday to convey her apology to the party, the former Gender Minister admitted to having acted wrongly which cast a slur on the party and its leadership. She added that they were unjustified and expressed regret.
Adwoa Safo further explained that these emotions were as a result of some complex personal challenges she encountered at a point in her life.
“It was not my intention to disrespect you. There was a lot going on in my life and family. I’m using this medium to plead for your forgiveness in the name of God,” she stated.
Against this backdrop, she apologized to President Akufo-Addo, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, the Chief of Staff, Parliamentary Leadership, top-brass of the party, party faithful, constituents and sympathisers.
Adwoa Safo’s absence from Parliament in November 2021 raised a lot of brouhaha causing a sharp division in her party
It would be recalled that in October 2022, the Majority Leader clashed with the Speaker of Parliament over a decision to subject Adwoa Safo’s fate to vote.
