The opposition National Democratic Congress earlier today 22nd July,2020 held a press conference on the violence that has characterised the ongoing Electoral Commission’s voter’s registration excerise.
Speaking at the NDC’s press conference, the elections director of the party Mr. Elvis Afriyie Ankra touched on the issue of the firing of gunshots by Hon. Hawa Koomson at a Polling station at Kasoa.
He explained that, “In any civilized society, this gangster Minister, would have been arrested, and made to stand prosecution by now. And this is exactly what her appointor, President Akufo-Addo should have done by now if he had any integrity, honor, and conscience left. But because he is the chief promoter and enabler of the unprecedented culture of lawlessness we are witnessing, we will not be surprised if Hawa Koomson is left off the hook like the several NPP criminals, such as “Double” and the “Azugu-masked” National Security Operatives who perpetrated the AWW violence, the NPP’s “Delta Force who attacked a court of competent jurisdiction in broad daylight etc., have been shielded from prosecution and punishment by the President. “
