Dome Kwabenya Parliamentary Elections:
LISTEN MAR 18, 2020

Some angry delegates in the Dome Kwabenya Constituency have sent a strong warning to the Majority Leader of Parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu to stay away from their internal elections or face wrath.

According to them, his involvement does not have any positive effect on the constituents likewise the electoral process.

According to Polling Station Chairman at the Apostolic Church Ayigbe Town Down, Frederick Gyebi-Donkor, he said "Hon Adwoa Safo knows that she has failed and will not win the upcoming elections. As a result, she is trying to use the same strategy by again inviting Majority Leader and CEO of the Forestry Commission to come and sweet talk delegates for her to win again"

He, however, noted that the delegates have learnt lessons from their previous mistakes and are ready to kick out the current Member of Parliament out of office since she has failed to deliver as promised.

The angry delegate also noted that his colleagues are disappointed in the Majority Leader for choosing to side with an Aspirant when he was supposed to have been neutral.

"No one can stop them from coming to the Constituency. The waters look dirty and we don't need them to come and muddy the water" he added.

The delegates say they are confident when the mantle is given to Ghana's High Commissioner to India, Dr. Mike Oquaye Jnr, he will ensure Dome Kwabenya Constituency rises again.

"What makes you think Hon Mensah-Bonsu can help you from ‘Sinking’ in this Parliamentary Elections? Did you inform Mensah-Bonsu that, you ignored Delegates of the 2000 jobs?" he quizzed.

He also revealed that due to greed, Hon. Adwoa Safo deliberately refused to give Educational Scholarships to some Delegates.

He noted that the current MP will do the Constituency and party a great deal of harm if given another chance.

He dared the MP to prove her innocence if indeed she never deliberately fought against the Constituency Chairman, Robert Bonsu from getting job of the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE).

The delegates believe that when the mantle is given the Dr Mike Oquaye Jnr, he will save the sinking ship of Dome Kwabenya Constituency from drowning.


The Majority Leader of Ghana's Parliament, Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu weeks ago has charged delegates in the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency to retain his able Deputy Hon. Sarah Adwoa Safo in the august house of Parliament as their Member of Parliament (MP).He mentioned that his deputy remains the only candidate who can help the party maintain its dominance and maximise votes in the Constituency in the crucial 2020 election looking at the trajectory of votes since she was first elected in 2012.Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu declared his support for Hon. Adwoa Safo to be retained due to the experience she has garnered in Parliament over the last 8years and for which will be wasted if she is not retained in Parliament. He stated that "but for the vigilant work done by Hon Adwoa Safo in Dome-Kwabenya in 2012 by uncovering the rigging machinery of the NDC which led to the Infamous election petition, the NPP probably may never have won the 2016 election."
