First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei Owusu, popularly known as Joe Wise, has said that the Dome-Kwabenya MP and Minister for Gender, Sarah Adwoa Safo, is no longer part of the majority caucus in Parliament.

According to reports, speaking on Pure FM, the Deputy Speaker was quoted by saying that, efforts made to bring back the MP in Parliament has proven unfutile and so they no longer count her as part of them.

He said, “In our strategy, we have taken it as going to rescue a kidnapped person, you presume she is dead, but if you go and she is alive, then it is God’s grace, and it adds to your gains, so that is our approach. So as it stands now, we don’t count her as part of us”.

He also added that, the Majority Leader often communicate with her but Adwoa Safo has warned him not to call her again but rather text.

“The Majority Leader used to communicate with her often, but the last time, he [Majority Leader] told me she said he shouldn’t call again, but send messages instead, which she responds to, but not phone calls”, he disclosed.

Meanwhile, one could recall since last year that, the Dome Kwabenya MP who is now out of the country, has been absent from Parliament for over 15 times because according to claims, she is demanding back her previous position in Parliament as the Deputy Majority Leader which according to Parliament rules, an MP who absents him or herself from Parliament for good 15 working days without any explanation to Speaker, shall vacate her seat and it will be declared as vacant.

It is also said that, very soon, she will be dragged to the Privileges Committee for further actions.
