Hon Adwoa Safo has also been making the headlines for many reasons in recent times.
Integrity in question
Why did she have to lie when she had a different way out. Is it possible that her integrity is now in question. It is unfortunate that Ghana does not take into account matters of integrity especially when it comes to political leaders. The fact that she lied about a building she owns would have been enough to have her resign or sacked if it was a developed country.
I have never been married
Even though she has two children with the same man, Safo confirmed that she was not married to the father of her children. They may have had their differences but that does not mean that they were not in good terms. In fact, she praises the man as a good dad to her children and a good friend of hers. It was imperative that they pursue different political lines and hence could not be together. They are both okay with that.
