The Minister-designate of Fisheries and Aquaculture, Mavis Hawa Koomson has apologised for firing a weapon near a polling station last year.
The MP for Awutu Senya East Constituency made the disclosure when she appeared before the vetting committee.
She revealed that she took the decision in self-defense at the time as her security detail was not around.
“Mr. Chairman, I want to take this opportunity to also apologise to the people who were so scared on that day.
“It was in defense of myself because I felt my life was in the danger in the circumstances that I found myself in”.
She however told the committee that she will not repeat the action again.
