The President of the Central University College, Prof. Kwesi Yankah, has condemned the demolition Tuesday morning of a University of Ghana toll booth at Okponglo http://graphic.com.gh/news/general-news/17836-national-security-demolishes-legon-nuisance-toll-booth.html by operatives of the National Security Council.

Commenting on his Facebook wall https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=675410012522771&id=100001613341517&stream_ref=10 , Prof Yankah questioned whether Ghana was back to the days of instant justice.

Welcoming back the military
I just returned from the Legon campus, and saw to my horror, a heap of concrete rubble, piled up at the Okponglo entrance of the University. Small crowds had stopped to look, and passers-by were peering in consternation. Was this an act of God? An over-zealous AMA at work? Then I heard whispers. Apparently, a demolition squad had been at work at the dawn of Monday. They had worked at it early morning, and reduced the new toll booth to a pile of debris. 

I later read a warning message from Col. Gbevlo Lartey, the Security Coordinator: if Legon dares to raise the structure, it will be demolished again! 

That does not sound like the democratic Ghana we all knew. 

Where did we lose the charming courtesies in dialogue, compromise, and respect for the rule of law? 

Of what relevance is a toll both to national security? 

Are we back to the days of instant justice? 
Come on Ghana. Is anybody in control?
