We’ll prosecute Hawa Koomson NDC – The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has approached President Nana Akufo-Addo to arrest and prosecute the Minister for Development and Special Initiatives, Mavis Hawa Koomson, for firing a firearm at a registration centre.
The MP who has admitted shooting a warning shot at the centre guaranteed it was to guard herself in the wake of feeling threatened while visiting registration centres at Kasoa.
Civil Society groups, just as security analysts, have required her arrest, prosecution and resignation.
Security expert Professor Kwesi Aning says the firearm activity by the Minister sabotages President Akufo-Addo’s battle against vigilantism in the nation.
As indicated by him, the MP is ill suited to hold herself out a lawmaker and also as a member of the ruling New Patriotic Party.
Tending to the Media on Wednesday, Director for Elections for the opposition NDC Elvis Afriyie Ankrah said if President Akufo-Addo neglects to prosecute the Minister, the following NDC government under John Mahama will guarantee that the minister faces the law.
“We condemn in no uncertain terms such thuggery, sponsored and led by a high ranking government official and lawmaker who is supposed to uphold the law at all times. Hawa Koomson has by this singular criminal act and the many others committed before, together with her gang and all that they have meted out to NDC supporters and innocent Ghanaians in the last couple of weeks demonstrated that she is a gangster who does not deserve to occupy any public position of trust and we join the many voices of conscience in our society to demand her immediate dismissal from office and her prosecution for these heinous crimes”.
“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, prosecute and punish her and all the thugs who were involved in this unlawful shooting incident, and all the other related criminal acts.”
