Hon. Mavis Hawa Koomson is currently on the hot seat of the Vetting committee of Ghana’s Parliament.
The Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture famed for firing gunshots during the 2020 Voter’s ID Registration Exercise was expected to have a tough time today but wasn’t expected to make a meal of herself.
Mavis Hawa Koomson from the onset started embarrassing herself and the one who appointed her.
The person who nominated ankasa we for ask am question. There is no way the person didn't know that the nominated is/was a bomb.

Few minutes into her vetting and she was trending number 1 on Twitter for all the bad reasons.
Ah this Hawa Koomson lady is not fit to handle our fisheries industry at all. she clearly has no knowledge about it. Our fishery Industry is already declining , putting someone like this in charge will only make things worse. #GhVetting

Did we swap Afoley Quaye for Hawa Koomson? Are we really serious? We are joking with livelihood and food security? A clear case of a square peg in a round whole. Ah, whew!

Even staunch supporters of NPP have called for her nomination to be rejected as she looks unfit for the Ministry.
I'll be very surprised if the appointments committee really clears Hon. Mavis Hawa Koomson to be Fisheries and Acquaculture minister. She doesn't cut. She seems to know little to nothing about the portfolio she's going to handle. I want more women in government but not like this.
