After months agitations, appeal, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has finally in a letter dated July 28, has terminated the appointment of Sarah Adwoa sarfo, as the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection.
It is instructive to note that this announcement coincides with the day, parliament failed to reach a decision on whether or not her parliamentary Seat, should be declared vacant.
The Dome-Kwabenya Member of Parliament (MP) is one of the three New Patriotic Party (NPP) were hauled before the Privilege’s Committee for absenting themselves from Parliament without permission.
The others were Kennedy Agyapong, MP for Assin Central and Henry Quartey Ayawaso Central.
The Committee met Ken Agyapong and Henry Quartey however, could not meet Adwoa Safo because she was out of the jurisdiction.
For a government in the opinion of this newspaper, that has lost popularity among Ghanaians, the departure of Adwoa Safo, could not have come at a better time.
Up to this moment, there is no tangible reason from her, as to why her constituents who voted for her should be denied representation.
The president, who was called upon severally to sack Adwoa Safo turned a deaf ear, an indication of how low we have sunk as a nation. From all indication, this government appears to be a government where anything goes. If not how can one explain the length of time it took to relief her of her post. She was obviously no longer interested in it.
However, more than anything else, the story of Adwoa Safo, will be a precedent that will be referenced in the future.
There is no contesting the fact that, the presidency, which used to be revered, is now being run by people whose actions continue to bring the name of the country into disrepute.
The ministry needs a fresh beginning, the president, must with dispatch appoint a new person to steer the affairs of the ministry, as it handles one of the most critical section of the society.
