We’ll prosecute Hawa Koomson if we win – NDC

Elvis Afriyie Ankrah

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has served notice it will prosecute the Minister for Development and Special Initiatives, Mavis Hawa Koomson, for firing a gun at a registration centre if nothing is done to her now.

The main opposition is therefore calling on President Nana Akufo-Addo to arrest and prosecute his minister for instigating chaos during the registration exercise.

After the confrontation which led to gunshots being fired and motorbikes being burned, Mrs. Koomson explained that she fired a warning shot in self-defense.

Four persons were arrested in connection with the incident on Monday. They have since been granted a total of ¢120,000 bail by a court in the Central Regional capital.

The Regional Police Command also said it has started processes to invite the lawmaker for questioning.

Civil Society groups and other experts are mounting pressure on the minister to resign.

Speaking at a media encounter, the 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, reports Starrfm.com.gh.
