"We warned Ghanaians that Nana Addo, as president, will foment chaos…this is the first transition that has a law to guide it, so, if Nana Addo as president cannot control his party people and security, then it says a lot about him. I believe he is aware of all that is happening," he said.

Since Nana Akufo-Addo's inauguration last Saturday, there have been reports of NPP supporters seizing facilities and properties and attempting to take over government agencies.

State institutions such as the NHIS, the passport office, the YEA, Tema Harbour as well as a number of toll booths across Accra and in other parts of the country saw some NPP supporters attempt to seize the facilities.

On Monday evening, the official vehicle of the Municipal Chief Executive of Evalue Ajomoro Gwira constituency in the Western region James Atta Kakra Baidoo was also seized by some NPP youth.

Asiedu Nketia remarked that "Mass dismissals are now impossible during a transition process; you can’t ask people in public office to ‘proceed on leave’ just anyhow without recourse to the transitional law, they should also learn from former presidents Mills and Mahama who demonstrated tolerance towards public officers appointed by the previous government at the time they took office."

"They [NPP] should rein their boys in, otherwise Nana Addo will be held responsible for any chaos," he added.
