…Plots To Dump Hawa Koomson
A New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for one of the constituencies along the coastal lines (Name Withheld) has been caught on tape negotiating with some people on how to vote against a ministerial nominee of President Akufo-Addo.
The said, MP who happens to be a new entrant to Parliament, was in the company of a Regional Chairman of the party when he was making those proposals to his friends to vote against Mavis Hawa Koomson as Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture.
The said MP was born in July, completed Senior High School in 1997, and holds a BSc in Marketing. He was appointed Chief Executive Officer in President Akufo-Addo’s first term.
DAYBREAK further gathered that this same MP, as CEO, even threatened to beat his supervising Minister. Again, he awarded huge contracts to his board chairman’s company.
The regional chairman in the thick of the plot has huge support in helping execute the plot, even though on his way to the Regional Chairman slot, he had tacit backing financially by the presidency.
Rank and file party people who are aware of the plot are wondering why he, together with the MP, would decide to work against the President in dumping Hawa Koomson.
Before he was elected regional chairman, the NPP had a majority of seats in his region. Interestingly, he ended up losing most of the constituency seats in the region to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
DAYBREAK sources indicated further that a copy of the recording has been handed to President Akufo-Addo.
Already, a group calling itself Care for Free and Fair Elections Ghana (“CARE” GHANA), a civil society organization, has petitioned Mr Alban Bagbin, the Speaker of Parliament and the Leadership, to reject the nomination of Madam Mavis Hawa Koomson, as Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture.
A statement signed by Mr David Kumi Addo, Executive Secretary, “CARE” GHANA, said the petition to reject Madam Koomson’s nomination based on what they explained as her “credibility deficit”, “violent tendencies” and “incompetence.”
