The managing editor of the Al Hajj newspaper, Alhaji Bature Iddrisu has predicted that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North, Kennedy Agyapong, may soon leave the country.
He argues that the MP would be uncomfortable doing business in an environment where security isn’t assured, and would therefore seek refuge elsewhere.
To him, the ongoing security threats in the country would eventually reduce Ghana into a failed state, and for businessmen like the MP, they would eventually lose their investments and travel outside, before security finally breaks down.
He further added that some political parties have militia – like groups who caused unnecessary chaos in the country. Such people, to him, should be brought to book by the security agencies.
He cited the example of the Metropolitan Chief Executie (MCE) for Savelugu, who for two months has been unable to access her office, because foot soldiers of a political party had locked her out; as a result, she works from her home.

He again mentioned the issue of the standoff between the outgoing and incoming Chief Executive Officers of the Tamale Teaching Hospital, and wondered whether it was the kind of health facility that president Akufo Addo promised Ghanaians.
The managing editor however admitted that he himself could be lawless if he wanted to, and has on a number of occasions contracted hooligans to deal with people he disagrees with.
He concluded by saying that there are grave issues of concern in the country, because there is a total disrespect for law and order.
This, he explained by saying that not even common traffic regulations are properly enforced. The resultant effect was that Ghana is on a time bomb and ruled via violence.
