Dr Clement Apaak, the NDC Member of Parliament for Builsa South has warned the government's task-force responsible for retrieving state assets from officials from the previous administration, to not use 'rough tactics' in executing their duties.
He was speaking on Montie FM, when he said that while the directive was was prudent, it was important that the members of the said task-force publicly identify themselves so as to prevent any incidents of criminals using the opportunity to oppress citizens.
"If the government truly believes that what they are doing is legitimately right, they should let us know the identities of persons who are to go round to take back the government properties, otherwise they are going to create a better atmosphere for armed robbers, criminals and the extreme elements of the NPP to take advantage of the current task force, which has come out of the office of the chief of staff to harass citizens of the country," he said.
Frema Osei-Opare, the Chief of Staff released statement to the press, urging officials from the previous Mahama administration to turn in any state assets still being kept, including vehicles and properties.
The statement came as a means to stop the aggressive seizure of state properties by rampaging activists of the ruling party.
Last week, the residence of the National Organizer of the NDC, Kofi Adams was besieged by alleged operatives from the National Security Council and the military, where they seized five vehicles that supposedly belonged to the state.
Remarking further on the issue, Dr. Apaak said, "We expect that the NPP will respect the right of the citizens. They should follow the rule of law to take persons rightfully but not this Kangaroo-Rambo style of behaviour they are introducing. We will not accept this behaviour…"
