The term "apology" is currently trending on Twitter in relation to comments made by former Gender Minister Sarah Adwoa Safo in a recent video.
In the video, Adwoa Safo explained her long absence from parliamentary duties last year.
She had vacated her ministerial role in December 2021 to care for her sick son in the United States.
Efforts to have her return to work were unsuccessful.
However, in the new video, the Dome Kwabenya MP apologized to various stakeholders for her past misconduct.
She said: "I would like to use this opportunity to apologize to everyone, my party the New Patriotic Party (NPP), most especially President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Chief of Staff Frema Osei Opare, Majority Leader of Parliament Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu and my colleague Members of Parliament for my past misconduct. I would like to say it wasn’t deliberate. I didn’t deliberately plan to disrespect you just that a lot was happening in my life at that moment."
She continued: "Once again, let me use this opportunity to apologize to NPP’s Greater Accra Regional executives, my constituency chairman and executives and constituents. Please forgive me because to err is human and to forgive is divine. We don’t pay evil with evil.”
