The Privileges Committee has summoned the Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Sara Adwoa Safo, to appear before it on July 6, 2022, over her absenteeism in the House.
Chairman of the committee, Joseph Osei Owusu directed that the summons be published publicly as the Member of Parliament has been unreachable.
“The Chairman of the Privileges Committee has directed that summons to the Hon. Member for Dome Kwabenya to appear before the Privileges Committee of Parliament on 6th July 2022 at 12:00 noon at Parliament House, New Administration Block, Committee Room 1, 2 & 3 pursuant to Article 103 (6) of the Constitution and Order 205 of the Standing Orders of Parliament be published in all relevant media. This comes after all attempts to reach the Honorable Member by the Committee failed,” a statement from the Parliamentary Service said.
The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin has tasked the Privileges Committee to dialogue with Adwoa Safo, Henry Quartey and Kennedy Agyapong over their continuous absenteeism.
It is expected of the three to give reasons, which are justifiable for their absenteeism. Failure to do so, mean that actions will be taken to remove them from Parliament.
The Committee said it “has employed all available means, both official and unofficial, to serve the Member with an invitation letter, including sending the invitation letter to her office and pigeonhole in Parliament,” but has not gotten any response from her as yet.
