Adwoa Safo’s seat is not the only one that must be declared vacant, that of Ken Agyapong, Henry Quartey must be included-Ablakwa

The Member of Parliament for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has posited that it should not only the MP for Dome/Kwabenya who must have her seat declared vacant as some members of the NPP have called for.

He says the Greater Accra Regional Minister who is also the MP for Ayawaso Central, Henry Quartey; and the MP for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong were absent from parliament without permission for more than 18 working days.

He has therefore asked Ghanaians to prepare for by-elections in Assin Central, Ayawaso Central and Dome/Kwabenya.

”In all fairness, we expect and will also ensure that the Privileges Committee considers the matter of three absenting MPs and not one. Article 97 (1) (c) of the 1992 Constitution and Order 16 (1) of our Standing Orders must not and will not be applied selectively.

Realistically, Ghanaians should be preparing for three by-elections in Assin Central, Ayawaso Central and Dome/Kwabenya.”

From a thorough and unimpeachable assessment of the Votes and Proceedings of Parliament — between October 26, 2021 and November 24, 2021; two NPP MPs: Ken Ohene Agyapong and Henry Quartey who is also Greater Accra Regional Minister were absent without permission from the Rt. Hon. Speaker, Alban S.K. Bagbin, for 18 working days each.

I am therefore perplexed and wondering, in all sincerity, the basis for the discriminatory and unprincipled attacks on Sarah Adwoa Safo by our colleagues on the NPP side of the House, and particularly from Ken Ohene Agyapong who is equally guilty of the same offence he’s been raving and ranting about.

In all fairness, we expect and will also ensure that the Privileges Committee considers the matter of three absenting MPs and not one. Article 97 (1) (c) of the 1992 Constitution and Order 16 (1) of our Standing Orders must not and will not be applied selectively.

Realistically, Ghanaians should be preparing for three by-elections in Assin Central, Ayawaso Central and Dome/Kwabenya.
