We’II prosecute Koomson if…NDC
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has hinted of plans to prosecute Minister of Special Development Initiatives Mavis Hawa Koomson for firing warning shots at a registration centre in Kasoa.
Although the MP has admitted her action was in self-defence, some civil society organisations and civil society groups have called for her dismissal.
Addressing the Media on Wednesday, Director for Elections for the opposition NDC Elvis Afriyie Ankrah said if President Akufo-Addo fails to prosecute the Minister, the next NDC government under John Mahama will ensure that the minister faces the law.
“If Hawa Koomson is left off the hook by President Akufo-Addo, I want to assure the people of Ghana that the next NDC government in January 2021 will arrest and prosecute her,” Mr Afriyie-Ankrah said.
“The NDC is totally disgusted by the thuggish and criminal shooting incident involving a gang of NPP thugs who were led by Hawa Koomson which has received both national and international condemnation and which have been admitted by the Minister of State herself”, Mr Ankrah said.
“We condemn in no uncertain terms such thuggery, sponsored and led by a high ranking government official and law maker who is supposed to uphold the law at all times”.
