David Obiri Yeboah, Personal Aide to Member of Parliament (MP) for Dome-Kwabenya Sarah Adwoa Safo, said his boss received a warm welcome from party executives after apologizing for her past misconduct.

In an interview with Asaase Radio on Friday, September 15, Obiri Yeboah, who is the former Dome Kwabenya NPP Constituency Youth Organiser said the lawmaker has been apologizing for her misconduct from the past year.

"My boss has been apologizing ever since she returned to Ghana. People like her so much,” he said.

He added, "We have engaged the party at the local level. We have met constituency executives and electoral area executives, and from what we saw, it was refreshing; she received a warm welcome."

This comes after Adwoa Safo rendered an apology to the party and the nation for her long absence from parliamentary duties.

In a video address, she stated, "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.”

Adwoa Safo had been absent from parliamentary duties since December 2021 under the pretext of taking care of her sick son.

Her prolonged absence sparked calls for her removal as minister and MP. While she was eventually relieved of her ministerial role, attempts to remove her from Parliament were unsuccessful.
