- NPP Organizer says Adwoa Safo bought Kwabenya SHS land with her personal funds
- He says NDC government refused to release funds to pay for the plots for the project
It is emerging that, the embattled Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya constituency, Sarah Adwoa Safo acquired the land used for the construction of the Kwabenya Community Day SHS with her own funds.
According to the, NPP Organizer for the constituency, Seth Kofi Osei-kissi, the MP has every necessary documents to the effect that, she acquired the parcel of land from the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission.
The NPP lawmaker, has come under intense pressure for slamming the past Mahama administration for claiming undue credit for the project.
Lawyer Adwoa Safo told her constituent last week that, the school project was realized through her hard work as an MP in collaboration with the World Bank.
She also insisted that, the NDC-Mahama led administration build Community Day SHS in only their strongholds and not that of Dome-Kwabenya.
A claim, the donor partners have since denied. Adding that, the funding agency only deals with governments and not individuals.
Some top members of the National democratic Congress (NDC), have lashed out at Deputy Majority Leader of Parliament, calling on her to apologize to former President Mahama over the gaffe.
But Mr Osei-Kissi who now speaks for Adwoa Safo on the matter revealed that, the legislator stepped in to acquire the vast land for the project, after the NDC government failed to release cash to pay for the land.
“The then MCE, Kwao Sackey told us the money given to him by government to buy the land for the project was small and could only purchase four plots which was inadequate for the school project. Adwoa Safo had to step in and see authorities of Ghana Atomic Energy Commission and later bought the vast land on which the school was eventually built", Mr Kissi said.
He also maintained that, "the records are verifiable at the Atomic Lands Secretariat, she paid for all the survey works on the land and she has all the receipts to back her claims,”
