The Member of Parliament for Dome Kwabenya, Sarah Adjoa Sarfo has been fingered for frustrating the completion of an ultra-modern market project started by the erstwhile Mahama government for the constituency.
This is according to Elikplim Akurugu, the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s Parliamentary Candidate for Dome-Kwabenya.
“This ultramodern market that we started, she has abandoned it. But as I speak to you, this market has componentry including hospital, Police station, school; almost any amenity that we need in Dome Kwabenya here is in it and yet since we left office, they have abandoned it,” the NDC MP aspirant said.
She heaped the blame on Adjoa Sarfo on Sunday during her official campaign launch at the Dome Park, where constituents had defied rainfall to attend.
“God willing when we return to power, we will complete it,” she said, adding, “we will build a Kejetia in Dome Kwabenya.”
In the Constituency, Adjoa Sarfo is derogatorily referred to in a number of terms, including, “daddy’s girl MP,” “E-Block magician,” (in reference to her fantastic claim that she built an E-Block school that everybody knows was built by former President Mahama), and “missing in action MP.”
During her campaign launch, Elikplim Akurugu stressed on the frustrating nature of the MP’s attitude, “This our “missing-in-action” MP, during the lockdown, did you see her here; during the registration, did you see her here; and what of the verification?”
According to Elikplim Akurugu, she has come up with a solution for the chronic absenteeism of Adjoa Sarfo from her Constituency. “If by the grace of God, you give me the mandate, I will institute an annual meeting with my constituents to appraise myself of their needs,” she said.
In addition to completing the Dome Kwabenya ultra-modern market, she said she will also lobby for President Mahama’s free apprenticeship program, lobby for a Fire Station, an Industrial Park and set up an MP’s Coordination Office in the Constituency, among others.
The campaign launch was graced by heavyweights including the Greater Accra regional Chairman of the party, Joseph Ade Coker, former Deputy Transport Minister, Joyce Bawa Mogtari and immediate past National Women’s Organizer of the NDC, Anita De Sosoo.
