The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is calling for the immediate dismissal and prosecution of the Minister of Special Development Initiatives, Madam Mavis Hawa Koomson.
At a press briefing at the NDC’s headquarters in Accra, the Director of Elections of the party, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah said the next NDC Mahama government in the year 2021 shall arrest and prosecute her and all the thugs who were involved in this unlawful shooting incident and all the other related criminal acts.
“All these people have been shielded from prosecution by no other person than President Akufo-Addo. We will, therefore, like to serve notice that if Hawa Koomson is left off the hook by President Akufo-Addo as we anticipate, the next NDC Mahama government in the year 2021 shall arrest and prosecute her and all the thugs who were involved in this unlawful shooting incident and all the other related criminal acts,” he said.
Hawa Koomson who is also the Member of Parliament for the Awutu Senya East constituency, on Monday, July 20, 2020, admitted firing a warning shot at a voter registration center in her constituency during a confrontation.
The Director of Elections of the party, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah said Hawa Koomsom and her accomplices should be made to face the law with immediate effect.
“The NDC is totally disgusted by the thuggish and criminal shooting incident involving a gang of NPP thugs who were led by Madam Mavis Hawa Koomson which has received both national and international condemnation and which has been admitted by the Minister of State herself. We condemn in no uncertain terms such as thuggery sponsored and led by a high ranking government official and lawmaker who is supposed to uphold the law at all times.”
On the same issue, the National Peace Council Chairman, Rev. Emmanuel Asante, has also called on Madam Mavis Hawa Koomson to resign over the matter. According to him, if she does not do that, President Akufo-Addo should sack her.
“If she doesn’t do that, the President must terminate her appointment,” Rev. Asante added when he spoke on Eyewitness News.
