Hawa Koomson’s Dismissal Calls “Absolutely Needless” – Freddie Blay States

Mr. Freddie Blay, the National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has described calls for the dismissal of Hon. Mavis Hawa Koomson who doubles as the Special Development Initiatives Minister, because she fired a gun at a voter registration centre, as “absolutely needless”.
In a statement, he said such calls should be totally disregarded.” “It is most worrying to see different groups expected to be more objective in their submissions, rather fall for the propaganda and misrepresentation of the opposition NDC in relation to the matter.”

Calls from Mrs. Hawa Koomson’s sacking or resignation have come from political stakeholders like the National Democratic Congress and neutral observers like the National Peace Council.

Neither the President nor Parliament has commented on the conduct of the legislator who represents the Awutu Senya East constituency.
But Mr. Blay has sided with the MP, who claims she was acting in self-defense during a confrontation between persons believed to be aligned to the NPP and the NDC at a registration centre in the constituency.

“With the unfolding evidence and facts surrounding the incident, it is clear that her actions were in self-defense to the unwarranted attacks on her and her team by masked motorists invited by the NDC to disrupt the EC registration process in her constituency,” he said.

He proceeded to describe Mrs. Hawa Koomson as “one of the calmest female representatives of the NPP in Parliament.” There is no evidence of any sort that can suggest her to be a violent individual, even in the face of extreme provocation.” Mr. Blay further suggested that her critics were being insensitive.
