The Communications Team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary aspirant, Dr.Louise Carol Serwaa Donkor has told delegates in the Old Tafo Constituency that the Presidency apologized to her for wrongfully suspending her over “insults” rained on party foot soldiers.
It would be recalled that the Presidential staffer, Dr Louise Carol Serwaa Donkor was suspended effective, June, 13, 2018 following her attack unleashed on New Patriotic Party (NPP) foot soldiers on social media.
A letter signed by the Chief of Staff directed Special Advisor to the President on SDGs, Mr. Eugene Owusu, to effect the suspension of Carol.
Parts of the letter then read “The attention of my office has been drawn to some unsavoury comments attributed to Dr. Louise Carol Serwaa Donkor, the policy and Communications Analyst at your outfit.
“These comments sought to disparage a section of the Ghanaian society, a conduct which is unacceptable to this office.
“Consequently you are directed to suspend Dr. Donkor from office for a period of 30 days beginning the 13th day of June, 2018.”
she was further required to render in writing an unconditional apology and commit to good behaviour.
Dr Carol incurred the wrath of New Patriotic Party (NPP) foot soldiers on social media over comments she passed on a post denigrating the ruling party’s foot soldiers.
She reportedly wrote in response to a post about not dealing with foot soldiers as a principle: “You shouldn’t”, she encouraged her friend who posted it. “You can’t reason with them (foot soldiers).” She said.
“It’s like tribalist”, she added.
But in a recent statement debunking claims and incessant reports suggesting that she insulted foot soldiers of the New Patriotic Party, Serwaa Donkor’s team mentioned that “What Dr. Serwaa was reported to have said was a big misunderstanding which was only corrected very late after the damage was done to her”.
The statement further mentioned that the Presidency has since recalled her and apologized for wrongfully suspending her.
“She has long been recalled to her post supporting the President and an apology rendered to her for being misrepresented and her reputation soiled. Those who spearheaded this grave offence against her person do not think of her this way and still associate with her and remain sorry for the damage they did to a very hardworking and humble woman.”

We live in a world where black is made white and white has become black. A world where lies bury truth because we make lies travel faster and leave truth behind .
Team Dr. Serwaa Donkor would like to point out that the original post was not made by Dr. Serwaa Donkor. The screenshots are there for all to see. The original post was made by one Ms Felicity Nelson. What Dr. Serwaa was reported to have said was a big misunderstanding which was only corrected very late after the damage was done to her. She has long been recalled to her post supporting the President and an apology rendered to her for being misrepresented and her reputation soiled. Those who spearheaded this grave offence against her person do not think of her this way and still associate with her and remain sorry for the damage they did to a very hardworking and humble woman.
This is the story that some of us have not been told:
In our party history, we have always referred to ourselves as Party Faithfuls and never footsoldiers until recently when we have found it convenient to do so to describe our struggle.
In the said post, no reference was made to NPP members whatsoever. Mr. Kofi Ofosu Nkansah who didn’t know the context of the discussion happening on Ms. Nelson’s page came suddenly to attribute the post to himself and roped in the NPP because of previous disagreements between himself and Ms Felicity Nelson. This was unbeknown to Dr. Serwaa Donkor who being a student, lecturer and researcher of Politics, know where the word footsoldier until now belonged to.
Mr. Kofi Nkansah took the issue to his wall and carried the message that Dr. Serwaa has insulted NPP party footsoldiers and instigated the masses of people who had not read the post against her before Dr. Serwaa could defend herself.
Mr. Kofi Ofosu’s claim was misleading and dishonest and was based on previous hatred for Ms. Felicity Nelson for which Dr. Serwaa Donkor suffered unknowingly.
This is how unfortunate things happen in life and we must all be careful because it can happen to any of us.
Dr. Serwaa Donkor has a leadership record which would not have been achieved if she wasn’t a humble person. She is a political scientist and advocate and could never make such remarks as purported. She remains resolute in her desire to serve the good people of this Constituency.
Team Serwaa would like to urge all of us to discredit and discount these fabrications and lies against their candidate and look to what they have seen and known about her not these lies.
She was born and bred in this Constituency and if we can’t find a bad report about her here, we can’t believe what people who hate her say about her on social media where people are full on envy.
We have interacted with Dr. Serwaa Donkor and we know her humility and compassion serving people. That is what we believe and will urge everyone to do same.
Team Vincent who wishes to turn this Constituency upside down because of their ambition and destroy fellow children of the Elephant fraternity won’t succeed, if God is judge.

God bless Tafo-Pankrono.
