Governance expert, Prof Agyeman-Duah has condemned the ongoing attacks on government installations in the country saying “it flies in the face of good governance” and good judgment.

To end the lawlessness, Prof. Agyeman-Duah recommends that the New Patriotic Party leadership and the Ghana Police Service must dialogue to find a lasting solution to the problem.

He said such unruliness must not be allowed to continue in any form or shape, adding that “the attacks denigrates the colorful transition we had”.

Some youth believed to be sympathisers of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), went on rampage on Monday breaking into rooms of occupants at the Kwame Nkrumah Flats at Laterbiokoshie in Accra.

But for the timely intervention of the Police, they would have forcefully ejected occupants of the flat.

Others also stormed the Tema Habour in the early hours of Monday demanding to be given control of some key installations of there. There were several reports across the country on Monday.

“We had a peaceful transition process and a colourful inauguration on Saturday only for these supporters to embark upon this shameful act. It is doesn’t augur well at all,” the governance expert said.

Prof. Agyeman-Duah said these when GHone’s current affairs programme State of Affairs, Monday.

Against that backdrop, he advised political parties to advise supporters to refrain from such actions as it could disrupt the nation’s peace and security.
