The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is insisting that the Minister of Special Initiatives and Member of Parliament (MP) for Awutu Senya East, Mavis Hawa Koomson should be prosecuted for firing a firearm in public at a voter registration centre.
According to the NDC, if the government fails to do so now, the NDC will make sure she is prosecuted when it comes to power.
The Director of Elections of the NDC, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah said this at a press briefing in Accra on Wednesday [July 22, 2020].
The MP on Monday in a television interview with Adom TV admitted to firing a firearm at a registration centre at Kasoa in the Central Region in what she said was a warning shot which was meant to protect her and her supporters whose lives she said were in danger.
But at a press briefing in Accra Wednesday, Mr Afriyie Ankrah said Hawa Koomson should be made to face the law.
Mr Afriyie Ankrah also served notice that the NDC will prosecute Hawa Koomson if their flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama is elected as president in the 2020 presidential election should President Akufo-Addo fail to act.
