NDC has slammed President Akufo Addo for maintaining Mavis Hawa Koomson as Minister for Special Development Initiatives days after her shooting incidence at a voters registration centre.
Hawa Koomson had admitted to firing a gun at a voter’s registration centre in Kasoa which she explained was an act of self-defence.
There have since been calls by various groups and personalities for President Akufo Addo to sack her with Imani boss, Franklin Cudjoe daring President Akufo Addo to sack her or lose his friendship.
According to the NDC, Hawa Koomson has been instigating violence since the start of the registration exercise at the Steps to Christ Registration Centre at her Constituency, Awutu Senya East.
Speaking to the press, Director of Elections for the NDC, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah said,
“In any civilized society, this gangster Minister would have been arrested and made to stand prosecution by now. And this is exactly what her appointor, President Akufo-Addo should have done by now if he had any integrity, honour, and conscience left.”
“But because he is the chief promoter and enabler of the unprecedented culture of lawlessness we are witnessing, we will not be surprised if Hawa Koomson is left off the hook like the several NPP criminals, such as ‘Double’ and the ‘Azugu-masked’ National Security Operatives who perpetrated the AWW violence, the NPP’s ‘Delta Force’ who attacked a court of competent jurisdiction in broad daylight etc., have been shielded from prosecution and punishment by the President.”
