Adwoa Safo should not be permitted to run for office – Lecturer to NPP

Aaron Kumah, a lecturer at the Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED), has weighed in on the recent political decisions made by the Member of Parliament for Dome Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo.

Kumah is strongly urging the New Patriotic Party (NPP) not to allow her to participate in the upcoming primaries as a candidate.

Kumah’s position is rooted in Adwoa Safo’s recent public apology, which he views as a strategic maneuver aimed at securing her continued presence in parliamentary politics.

The lecturer contends that Adwoa Safo’s recent actions have demonstrated a lack of respect for the party, and he believes this disregard should be a critical factor when evaluating her candidacy.

While recognizing the significance of issuing apologies when one acknowledges their errors, he remains skeptical about the sincerity of Adwoa Safo’s apology.

He remarked, “For her to come and beg, I see no regret in her. What I see is that because she has realized that we are going for primaries and initially she didn’t want to contest again, but now she has realized that she can go again, so she wants to come and apologize.

“If they forgive her and NPP delegates vote for her to become an MP again, she will lose miserably because what she did is disheartening.”

The main source of Kumah’s worries is what she perceives to be Adwoa Safo’s lack of regard for the party.

Her limited exposure to a regular classroom setting as a result of home tuition, he said, may have contributed to this mindset.

Last week, the former gender minister ended her silence regarding her extended absence from parliament.

During this statement, she tendered a wholehearted apology to her party and its members, providing insight into the personal difficulties she and her family encountered during that period.

Adwoa Safo admitted that her absence had not been deliberate and conveyed sincere regret for any inconvenience it might have caused.

She specifically addressed key figures within her party, stating, “I want to use this platform to apologize to my party, and leaders of the party. The first is President Akufo-Addo, the Vice President, the Chief of Staff, the Majority Leader, and the entire Majority Caucus.”

She continued, “I want to apologize because it was not intentional, there was a lot going on in my life and that of my family. I am using this medium to plead with you all in the name of God. To my regional executives and my constituency executive, the headquarters of the NPP, I plead with you all, including sympathizers and supporters who love the party and myself, to forgive me for everything that has happened.”
