Mr Yaw Oppong, a lecturer at the Central University College has asked government appointees as well as ministers to attach seriousness to the office they hold.
According to him, the office they hold is enough for them to think people with malicious intentions will target them and therefore the need to be alert in all they do.
Speaking on the flagship political show of Joy fm called Newsfile, the lawyer expressed surprise at the Lands and
Natural Resources Minister, John Peter Amewu who claimed ignorance about a bugging device that had been placed in his office by his predecessor.
According to the law lecturer, the decision of his ministry to stop illegal mining alone should have aroused his senses to act smart and take the necessary precautions at the office he occupies.
Sounding caution to appointees, Mr Yaw Oppong called on them to act smart and wise in all their dealings.
He has also asked that they conduct occasional sweeps at the offices they occupy.
The sweep, he noted should be done by people having the requisite expertise particularly personnel from the National security since the office they hold are public offices.
This, he believes would save them the danger of being trapped or caged by malicious people.
Mr Oppong cautioned about the seeming apathy displayed by some of the ministers.
According to him, some ministers behave as if the offices they hold are their personal property do what pleases them.
This, he explained had made them to behave naively with the people they work with.
He, therefore, reminded them to attach seriousness to the office they hold since it is sensitive.
