The installation of the new paramount main observed a jubilant crowd thronging the streets of Akropong as the new Akuapemhene, guarded by state protection staff, was staying outdoored.
In accordance to Samson Anyenini who is also host of Joy News’ latest affairs programme, Newsfile, condition safety personnel at the celebration experienced clearly been guarding a breach of the President’s lawful orders from general public gatherings and the individuals of Akuapem had been place in hazard as social distancing was not noticed.
He stated, these kinds of a blatant disregard for the regulation sets a negative precedent for other Ghanaians and demonstrates some double benchmarks for the police, who experienced previously arrested violators of the President’s orders.
“What do all these acts smacking of impunity and disregard for regulation and administration of justice ordinarily talk to the standard citizen?
“The police who arrested violators, received some spending hefty financial fines and some in jailed, how will it explain its subsequent steps to the over 400 citizens it is prosecuting?
“Will the President or Govt offer with the latest violation by merely condemning it,” he quizzed.
He has, as a result, identified as for stringent sanctions to be meted out to the violators as Ghana’s Constitution in write-up 17 declares that “all individuals shall be equivalent prior to the legislation.”
