The Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo, will appear on the Privileges Committee of Parliament when it convenes later today to consider the Speaker’s referral in relation to absentee MPs.

Dome-Kwabenya MP, Sarah Adwoa Safo is expected to make her case before the committee after indicating on previous occasions that she had not received an invitation from the committee.

As at this morning, Wednesday June 6, sources on the committee indicate that there is no confirmation as to whether she will appear in person or through virtual means.

The Committee has asked for an extension of time from the Speaker to do its work after the initial three-week time frame elapsed.

The Privileges Committee has been tasked by the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, to engage Adwoa Safo, Kennedy Agyapong and Henry Quartey over complaints of chronic absenteeism brought against them.

The three are expected to give justifiable reasons for their absenteeism, failure of which actions will be taken to remove them from Parliament.

The Committee had 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 it is yet to get any response from her.
