The Chairman of the National Peace Council, Rev. Emmanuel Asante, is asking for the resignation of the Special Initiative Minister Mavis Hawa Koomson, after she admitted firing a gun at a voter registration centre in her constituency.
He added that, “If she doesn’t do that, the President must terminate her appointment”.
Rev. Asante was also of the view that Parliament should take an interest in how the matter unravelled.
“The privileges committee must take this seriously because she had brought the name of Parliament into disrepute,” he noted.
Rev. Asante stressed that the MP’s conduct was unconscionable and thus, reminded political leaders to set good examples ahead of the 2020 election.
“As far as I am concerned, there is no justification for what she did, especially as a lawmaker breaking the law,” he said.
“There is no reason why our election should be characterised with violence and the leaders… must lead the way in terms of what they do and in terms of what they say.”
The Central Regional Police Command also said it has started processes to invite Mavis Hawa Koomson for questioning.
