I wonder if I’m being victimized because I’m a woman – Embattled Adwoa Safo laments
Underfire Dome-Kwabenya Member of Parliament (MP), Sarah Adwoa Safo has reacted to calls for his firing from office.
In a post on his Facebook page, the Minister in charge of Gender and Social Protection says she has become a victim of a sustained political witch hunt by certain elements in the NPP and in Parliament to achieve their own parochial goals.
According to her, she is now left to wonder if she is going through this ordeal just because she is feminine.
“In the last few months that I have been away from official duties albeit not intentionally, I have become a victim of a sustained political witch hunt by certain elements in the NPP and in Parliament to achieve their own parochial goals.
“This has left me asking myself if this is happening because I am a woman who for just this one time needed some time off to deal with a few personal issues which were too dear to share with the larger publics. In the face of all these, I have questioned why I have had to be treated differently by not enjoying the famous support of our party leadership both in Parliament and at the party level in my most difficult moments these past few months,” Sarah Adwoa Safo shares in a post on his Facebook page.
She adds “As a member of the party, I have served with utmost diligence (both in opposition and in government) and have at all times put the fortunes of my family at the disposal of the party. At no point in time have myself nor my family withheld anything of ours from our great Party, yet today, I am conveniently being called a traitor and all manner of names with several schemes being put to play and employed to oust me from my position as MP and Minister.”
In her post, she has stressed her commitment to serve the ruling NPP party as she extends her appreciation to H.E President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
“I conclude by reiterating that, in the face of clear political hounding and vendetta by certain elements within the party and parliament against me, I have never wavered in my commitment to the ideals and creed of the New Patriotic Party and the Government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, to whom, I am eternally grateful,” Sarah Adwoa Safo adds.
