Ghana’s social media space had a busy weekend trolling Member of Parliament and Deputy Majority Leader Sarah Adwoa Safo who was accused of lying about a public school in her community she claimed to have helped establish.
The MP, who is a member of the ruling party, was seen in a viral video claiming to have negotiated with the World Bank to build the Kwabenya Senior High School while she was in opposition.
However, it is public knowledge that the school was built as part of the previous government’s 200 high schools project partly funded by the World Bank before leaving office in 2016.
Adwoa Safo was held to account after the World Bank denied her claims to local media Joy FM by saying it deals with only “governments and does not play any role in the internal politics of the day in any of the countries it operates in”.
The issue aggravated when she refused to apologise after an appeal by former deputy education minister, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, who refuted her claims.
She received support from some members of her party who said she actually bought the land for the school. Unverified documents have also been produced in that regard.

Far from the truth, Ghana’s social media space has published several apology letters, quotes and claims purported to be from the member of parliament.
The internet trolling continues as the controversy unfolds.
Below are a few posts by Ghanaians on Twitter.
