I have served my constituents well – Adwoa Safo


Sarah Adwoa Safo, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Dome-Kwabenya, has stated that she is hopeful that she will be re-elected by party delegates to represent the seat in the legislature for the eleventh time.

She is also certain that after overcoming the NPP’s parliamentary primaries on January 27, 2024, she will receive a landslide support from the electorates in the constituency, despite her mistakes in 2023.


Interacting with media on Wednesday, January 3, 2024, after successfully offering herself for public inspection, the former deputy Majority Leader stated that her shortcomings in 2023 will not stop her from continuing to serve her constituents.

“Admittedly, I made some mistakes in 2023 as a result of things that were beyond my control. But what was so important was that the people of Dome-Kwabenya stood solidly behind me. There is a saying that in your suffering, that is where you get to know your loved ones. The good people of Dome-Kwabenya have shown me love and I will continue to serve them”, she noted.

She added “I have served my constituents diligently for almost three terms and that is why they are still urging me on to go for another term and I am hopeful that the delegates will rally behind me by voting massively for me on January 27, 2024. I will never disappoint them”.

Adwoa Safo, Ghana’s first Minister for Procurement and a former Minister of Gender, Children, and Social Protection, stated that despite the fact that some constituency executives publicly expressed their displeasure with her following the challenges she faced last year, she remains committed to pursuing her dreams for both the party and the people of Dome-Kwabenya.

“The task ahead of us is not easy and I will urge all Dome-Kwabenya NPP members and party enthusiasts to remain united, rally behind me, and together, let us work to deliver more for our people. In the area of education, we have done well. In the area of healthcare, our footprints are there for all to see; in terms of security, we have made great strides; in terms of infrastructure and social intervention projects, we have made headways. But there is more to be achieved and I will urge that all of us are guided by our utterances because after the primaries, we remain as one body to fight for a common purpose”, she underscored.

Sarah Adwoa Safo is the second (2) candidate on the ballot, with two others challenging her.

Mike Oquaye Jr., who lost to Safo in the primary twice before, is hoping to make apologies this time.

In 2020, Oquaye Jnr garnered 488 votes against 496 secured by Safo. Madam Sakyi Oppong Sheela Adoma has also filed to contest primaries.
