General Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Madam Janet Asana Nabla, has expressed some level of disappointment over the removal of the Gender and Social Protection Minister, Sarah Adwoa Safo by the President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Akufo Addo.
Speaking to A1 Radio, Madam Nabla, said the Gender Minister’s reasons that led to her absence in her office in Parliament and the Ministry has to do with health and family issues therefore should have been treated with some level of consideration by the President and the government.
According to her, since Madam Adwoa Sarfo has always been working for the development and the welfare of the Ghanaian society and never show bad faith in her line of work, she should have been considered by the president.
“It is so disheartening I am deeply saddened by the announcement of the president that the Gender Minister should go. I am very disappointed and also sad because we all know who she is, we know her contributions to this country and she has never behaved like this before. But now upon giving birth, she had complications, and according to her they know, and she can’t come out and tell the general public about her problem.”
“So now that she is in the country, I was expecting the president to invite her, listen to her side of the story. But all of the sudden, the president asks her to go and you have the public supporting that she has to go.”
A statement signed by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin said the President in accordance with article 81 (a) of the constitution revoked the appointment of Adwoa Safo, who is also Member of Parliament for Dome Kwabenya.
The decision by the President comes at a time when Parliament is debating her continuous stay in the house after absenting herself for more than 15 sitting days without approval from the Speaker of Parliament.
