The Dome-Kwabenya Constituency Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Theophilus Ansah Larbi has cautioned that the party stands to lose votes in the upcoming 2024 elections if it continues to entertain Sarah Adwoa Safo as its Member of Parliament for the seat.
Mr Larbi expressed concerns that her candidacy could be "disastrous" for the party's electoral prospects.
In an interview with NEAT FM's "Ghana Montie" morning show, he emphasised the need for the NPP to strategize effectively and present a "more serious" candidate for the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency.
He argued that continuing to support Adwoa Safo without exploring other options could lead to a decline in support for the party after she abandoned her constituents for several months.
"We are going to lose votes if we continue to pamper her [Adwoa Safo]. We have the men, and she is not the only person capable of representing the constituency," Mr Larbi stated, expressing his concerns about the NPP's electoral fortunes in the area.
He suggests urgent action to address the situation. "NPP is falling in Dome-Kwabenya, and something must be done to save the party," he stated.
The comments from Theophilus Ansah Larbi followed an apology issued by Sarah Adwoa Safo in which she expressed regret for her behaviour and actions that caused a stir within the NPP.
Adwoa Safo specifically apologised to key party figures, including President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and Chief of Staff Akosua Frema Osei-Opare.
The former Deputy Majority Leader sought forgiveness from the Majority Caucus in Parliament and extended her apologies to the NPP's regional and constituency executives.
