The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, has described the Member of Parliament for Dome Kwabenya Constituency, Sarah Adwoa Safo, as a bimbo for allegedly lying about her efforts to lobby the World Bank to fund the construction of a community day senior high school sited in her constituency.
According to him, the Deputy Majority leader in Parliament has a seemingly beautiful face but with an empty head and that automatically makes her a complete bimbo.
“Adwoa Safo is going around telling serious lies and in English we will call her a bimbo, a seemingly nice face but of course the head is empty. She is a complete bimbo,” he said.
Mr. Anyidoho, who made these comments during an interview with Montie Fm in Accra, was expressing his disgust at the various shameful developments happening within the NPP led administration, including the MP’s alleged twisting of facts about the school block in her constituency.
Sarah Adwoa Safo became the subject of discussion over the weekend and received massive social media trolling after claims that a school built in her constituency was through her personal efforts.
In a video that went viral the Deputy Majority Leader was heard confidently boasting that she lobbied the World Bank to fund the construction of a community day senior high school sited in her constituency.
But the school block in question happened to be one of the community day schools former President John Mahama’s government promised and built.
Information available to this paper indicates that the President and his National Democratic Congress party promised in their election 2012 campaign to build 200 community day schools.
The idea behind such a move was to expand access to secondary education and was a better policy than the blanket free senior high school education promised by the then opposition New Patriotic Party.
The buildings were designed in E-shape with the ‘E’ symbolising Excellence, according to then President Mahama himself. Some of the schools were sponsored by the World Bank. The one sited at Kwabenya in the Ga East Municipality of the Greater Accra was one of such schools.
Speaking about developments ongoing within the NDC, Koku Anyidoho revealed that the party’s National Executive Council, as part of efforts to get the reorganisation of the party on its right footing, has recommended the setting up of an implementation committee which will then set up additional teams, including Communication, Finance, Research and Planning, Reorganization and Healing Team, to help speed up the NDC reorganising process.
“ As I am speaking to you I am just returning from the Volta Region since last week Thursday and I am there working in the Ho Central Constituency area, I am coming back today because of SEC meeting . We agree that yes we did lose the elections and that’s why we are embarking on a reorganisation exercise. As I am speaking to you now the National Executive Council has given us the opportunity to set up an Implementation Committees and so we have set up five of these Implementation Committees, and if I can remember on top of my head we have the Communications, Finance, we have Research and Planning, we have Reorganization and also the five one is the Healing team that Prof. Kwesi Botchwey Committee recommended and so we have left that one with the party’s Council of Elders to set up the Healing Committee that will be used to go around to do that. So we are busy in the reorganization process and that is more important to us now,” he said.
