The leadership and entire membership of Educational Workers Connect (EWC) is humbly calling on His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as a matter of urgency fires the Minister for Special Development Initiative and Member of Parliament for Awutu Senya East Constituency, Hon. Mavis Hawa Koomson for firing a gun at Electoral Commission’s voter’s registration centre.
As a country and people with a common destiny, it is important to state that those in leadership must be seen acting responsibly for the entire citizenry to emulate.
As she has admitted Monday on National Television that she fired gunshots at a Registration Center in her Constituency, it is imperative that His Excellency Nana Addo relieves her for embarrassing his government and the nation at large.
According to the group, It is very regrettable and shameful for an honourable member of the legislature to have exhibited such a reprehensible, criminal and condemnable act.
As a woman, society expects more decency, calmness and motherhood tendencies from her. Unfortunately, she has let all women down with her conduct.
We expect that, the President relieves her of her position as a minister if she refuses to do the honourable thing by resigning.
It is important to state that peace does not rest in the charters and constitutional provisions alone but also in the hearts and minds of all citizens, hence it behooves we ensure national peace as we are preparing to go through another crucial election as a nation.
We should all be committed to the registration exercise by making sure it is peaceful across the nation thereby avoiding all ugly tendencies.
Let us all be reminded that the December 7th, election is not a do or die affair, but a contest of ideas and whoever wins is the one to lead the country. We are by statement urging all to maintain peace before, during and after the election.
Having said that, we conclude by reiterating our call for His Excellency Nana Addo to with immediate effect sack Hon Hawa Koomson in order for it to serve as deterrent to any political party member, who will like to replicate such a shameful act in the future.
