Sarah Adwoa Safo, a representative for Dome-Kwabenya, has spoken out about the difficulties she is having within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

She claims that she is the target of an ongoing political witch hunt being conducted by certain members of the NPP and Parliament to further their own narrow agendas.

Ms. Safo expressed dismay at the disparate treatment she has received from others, including party members, as a result of her absence from work to attend to personal matters regarding her child.

She expressed astonishment that she had not always had the well-known support of her party’s leadership in Parliament and at the party level.

In a Facebook post congratulating the party’s freshly elected National Executives, the Gender and Social Protection Minister made the comments.

She claimed that despite making many sacrifices for the NPP, including those involving her family, she is now being labeled a traitor and that “there are conspiracies to remove me from my position as MP and Minister.”

The Dome-Kwabenya MP was baffled as to why some NPP lawmakers treated her poorly rather than defending her as they had done for a minister colleague who had skipped almost two years of session for a related reason.

The subject of the recently concluded National Delegates meeting, “Holding Together, Working Together,” was mentioned by Madam Safo as embodying what adherents of the Danquah-Busia-Dombo Tradition must do and stand for.

“It’s important that we continue to be one. We need every single person and vote in our lone effort to break the eight. We cannot abandon anyone, she continued.
