Sarah Adwoa Safo, the embattled Dome-Kwabenya Member of Parliament (MP), is expected to return to Ghana this week, according to reports.
According to her aide, Nana Dubin Kwapong.
“We are going to see her this week, and we will hear from her,” he said on Accra-based Okay FM.
President Nana Akufo-Addo extended Miss Safo’s leave of absence from office on October 6, 2021.
The leave, which she requested for personal reasons, was supposed to end on August 31, 2021, but she was unable to resume.
Instead, she requested an extension without specifying when she will resume, which has sparked controversy.
Many have accused her of sabotaging government business in addition to abandoning parliamentary duties.
Mr Kwapong explained that the MP’s absence was not due to a disagreement with anyone, but rather to attend to personal matters, as she explicitly stated in her leave request.
“She has not made her plans known yet, but I’m confident the constituents appreciate her work and will fully support her if she decides to contest,” the aide said of whether she will run for re-election in 2024.
