Former Obuasi East Member of Parliament, Edward Ennin, has criticised the New Patriotic Party-NPP for turning MP for Dome Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo “into the thorn in their side”.
He argued that Adwoa Safo has been pampered by the party and given all she requested of them.
Accordingly, Edward Ennin, stated that “Adwoa Safo’s tantrums and behaviour now is as a result of the party refusing her the position of Deputy Majority Leader as rumoured”.
“I don’t know what is going on with Adwoa Safo, but the party bigwigs are the ones who dine and wine with her. They have given in to all her demands until now when they turned down her request”.
“It is how she was brought up that has made her this way. You can decide to feed your child cerelac until the day you run out of money and decide to feed the child gari. The child will eventually misbehave and refuse the gari and that behaviour is no fault of the child but the parent.”
Mr Ennin, speaking on an Accra based Happy98.9FM’s Epa Hoa Daben political talk show advised the NPP to go back to its roots and appoint persons into positions because of their competencies and not because they are bootlickers.
In recent times, the Gender Minister, Sarah Adwoa Safo, has come under heavy criticism over her continuous absence from Parliament.
Earlier reports suggest that she was using her seat as a bargaining chip to frustrate government business.
Micheal Okyere Baafi, the New Juaben South MP, is quoted to have said that “all the problems government is facing are attributable to Adwoa Safo. Clearly, her intention and posture show that she wants to sabotage NPP”.
Meanwhile, the Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch Newspaper, Ben Ephson has asked the leadership of the ruling New Patriotic Party to take a conclusive decision on Mrs Adwoa Safo.
