Ghanaian sports journalist, Gary Al-Smith has come to the defence of Fisheries Minister designate, Hawa Koomson.
Madam Hawa during her vetting session with the Appointments Committee of Parliament today found it difficult to express herself in English Language.
Gary has come out to say that if Hawa can indeed do the work they’re appointing her for, then her fluency in English language shouldn’t be an issue.
He suggested in a tweet that it wouldn’t be a bad idea for nominees with poor command over the English language to be allowed to express themselves in their local languages.
In his words, Gary Al-Smith wrote:
“People are suggesting Madam Hawa Koomson has issues with expression, but insist she can work.
If so, why don’t we allow such nominees to express themselves in their local languages?
After all, we want people who can do the job. I’d prefer that.
