Dome Kwabenya MP, Sarah Adwoa Safo, was no where in sight when Parliament was conducting a secret ballot to determine the fate of President Akufo-Addo’s recent ministerial appointees.

All members of the House were expected to be in the House to cast their votes on the matter, given the country’s hung Parliament.

Prior to the vote, the National Executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) issued a statement directing all members of the Majority Caucus not to miss the day’s sitting.

However, the former Gender Minister was no where to be found during the day’s sitting.

It is unclear her whereabouts or whether she had sought permission to be absent from the sitting but when her name was mentioned by the Speaker, she was not in the House to cast her vote.

Aside Adwoa Safo, MP for the Kumawu Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Philip Atta Basoah, was also not in the House.

With the absence of the two, the President’s nominees are unlikely to be appointed if all the members of the Minority Caucus were present to cast their vote, and did so in accordance with the party’s decision.
