The committee set up by government to retrieve state assets suspected to be in the possession of some individuals, is unnecessary, the Executive Director of the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) has said.

According to him, "People who have taken and are keeping state property unlawfully, even if bicycles, must be arrested by the police, prosecuted and punished".

Government indicated that, it had set up a task-force which will focus on retrieving state assets believed to be held by individuals.

The decision followed the seizure of five cars belonging to the National Organiser of the NDC, Kofi Adams, by men believed to be National Security personnel.

But the NDC on Saturday subsequently warned that the task-force could compromise peace and stability.

Below is his Facebook post:

COMMITTEE TO RETRIEVE STATE ASSETS UNNECESSARY
Why should a government set up a Committee to retrieve state property from people who are keeping such assets unlawfully? When someone unlawfully takes something that does not belong to him or her, it's stealing. Should we be setting up committees to go after people who steal? Or we are talking about some people being above our laws? Such a committee only creates an avenue for people to hide behind the cloak of partisanship to seek undeserving public sympathy. People who have taken and are keeping state property unlawfully, even if bicycles, must be arrested by the police, prosecuted and punished? That is the way to go to end the unfettered greed among some people. What is this business of spending our resources on a committee to do the work of the Police.
