Hon. Adwoa Safo, Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, has been removed from Parliament’s Environment, Science and Technology Committee.
She has recently been appointed to the House’s Poverty Reduction Committee.
According to the current committee selection report, Adwoa Safo is one of the high-ranking casualties of a rearrangement of parliamentary committees.
It’s unclear whether her frequent absences from the House due to domestic issues have anything to do with the majority leader’s most recent decision.
“The Honourable George Kwame Aboagye has now been replaced with the Honourable Adwoa Safo under the Poverty Reduction Strategy Committee,” Majority Chief Whip Frank Annoh-Dompreh remarked on the floor of Parliament on Thursday, June 2, 2022.
The Honourable Musa Abdul-Aziz Ayaba has been succeeded as the Minister of Local Government by the Honourable Bright Wireko-Brobbey.”
“In line with Standing Orders 151, 152, and 193 of the House, the Honourable Sarah Adwoa Safo is replaced on the Committee on Environment, Science, and Technology by the Honourable George Aboagye.”
“Some Chairpersons and members have been appointed as Ministers of States, Regional Ministers, and Deputy Regional Ministers,” he noted, necessitating the recomposition.
Adwoa Safo has been called before Parliament’s Privileges Committee for being absent from the house’s work for numerous months.
