Days after the Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya showed remorse and pleaded to the NPP as a party, this portal has gathered that the MP would be contenting the Dome-Kwabenya seat again in 2024.
The people of Dome-Kwabenya have not got the best from their MP since she was re-elected in 2020. This, according to many in the constituency and Ghana at large, is a chance for the electorates in the constituency to kick the NPP out in the parliamentary elections come 2024, irrespective of whom the NPP presents to the electorates.
After her public announcement of her apology to the NPP and the leadership of the government, the New Patriotic Party expressed its approval of the public apology.
Adwoa Safo to contest Dome-Kwabenya seat again in 2024 -NPP leadership divided on the decision
In the estimation of the Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Haruna Mohammed. The apology of the MP is a good decision she made, and the action positively contributes to the party’s image. “She has done something positive, and the party welcomes her apology,” Haruna Mohammed said.
However, some New Patriotic Party (NPP) executives in the Dome-Kwabenya constituency say they have taken the apology by Member of Parliament, Sarah Adwoa Safo, with a pinch of salt.
Some executives of the ruling NPP in the Dome-Kwabenya constituency have also indicated that, if the party goes ahead to electing her as its candidate for the 2024 elections, the chances of the NPP losing the seat were going to be great.
However, the NPP as a party cannot prevent her from picking nomination forms and contesting to be elected by the constituents for the sole Member of Parliament candidate slot for the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency come November 4th, 2024.
Hon. Adwoa Safo t has been described as a habitual apologetic individual each time she messes up with the party and that, it was time for the party to apply the wipe.
The NPP constituency Secretary for Dome-Kwabenya, Theophilus Larbi, did not mince words when he described the apology offered by Hon. Adwoa Safo, MP for Dome-Kwabenya Constituency as habitual. He furthered that the re-election of Hon. Adwoa Safo as parliamentary candidate for the next general elections could adversely affect the party’s chances in the constituency.
The move by Hon. Adwoa Safo to contest Dome-Kwabenya has brought mixed feelings to the rank and file of the leadership in the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency and beyond.
The NPP is expected to hold its main internal party elections to elect a presidential candidate as well as its parliamentary candidates on 4th November 2024.

Boakye-Agyarko who tied for the 5th position with Francis Adei Nimo has also pulled out, leaving four persons to contest the November 4th elections for the Presidential candidate slot.
