Sam Okudzeto, a seasoned lawyer has advised rampaging supporters of the New Patriotic Party to cease the takeovers and attacks on state institutions.
According to him, the NPP must assume responsibility for the actions of its supporters, cautioning them against the acts.
In an interview with the Ghana News Agency, Mr Okudzeto said, "Your party has won power, but you are not the one governing. It is the people we elected into office who, are the ones supposed to be governing. If all of us are supposed to take the laws into our hands, we will have chaos."
He stated that a switch in the ruling administration does not give license for state-owned agencies to be vandalized.
He further noted, "We are not in the jungle. We are in a civilised society, where there are rules, there are laws. So we should allow the rules and laws to operate. Those kids need to be educated to make them understand. If you vandalise SADA office, it is a national asset you are destroying. If you lock up SADA office, will that put food on your table?"
Mr Okudzeto urged supporters of the ruling party to be patient as their elected officials settle into their positions, and ensure there is availability of employment opportunities for them.
Mr Okudzeto was speaking at a roundtable discussion organised by the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), themed, "Africa through the eyes of BRICS."
