Arrest youth taking over state institutions – Security analyst

policePolice officers must as a matter of urgency arrest the supposed New Patriotic Party (NPP) youth who attempted taking over the Sagnarigu and Tamale offices of the National Health Insurance Authority, Nana Owusu Sekyere, a security analyst, has said.

According to him, it was illegal for the youth to have embarked on such an act, hence should be arrested.

The irate youth, who numbered over 30, on Monday January 9 were prevented from taking over the state agency by the police. They insisted the directors of the scheme leave office by Tuesday, 10 January, since, according to them, they were appointed by the Mahama administration, which is out of power, and thus must also leave office.

No arrest has been made yet.

Similarly, a group of men believed to be members of the Invincible Forces of the governing NPP stormed the premises of the Passport Office in Accra demanding official information about the activities of the office.

The men, who entered the premises in an NPP-branded car, said they belonged to the security force of the governing NPP, Director of Passport Alexander Grant said on Monday.

Speaking in relation to these developments in an interview with Emefa Apawu on 505 on Class91.3FM on Monday, Mr Sekyere said: “It is quite dangerous now seeing how people can dubiously wear party colours or party paraphernalia or party T-shirts and then act in a capacity as party members when actually they are not. It is a very slippery road. I will be very happy for these people who are perpetrating this act to be arrested in the first place and of course due process taken, and we will actually find out that you are party A or B. That is where the point will be, then we can have this discussion appropriately about party functionaries or the rank and file of party members actually cautioning or rebuking their own.

“I cannot understand why we should encourage illegal entities to take over legal entities and I am hoping that even though we have not established fully, through any form of investigation or intelligence gathering that they are 100 per cent from this party, I will love the hastening of the arrest of these people, [bringing] to book for us to interrogate where they come from then we can move the conversation as to how we address parties to be able to act responsibly.”
