There have been persistent requests made to the Attorney General to withdraw the lawsuit that has been brought against Mr. Gyakye Quayson, and the Chief of the Dormaa traditional region, Osaagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyeman Badu II, has urged the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to step in and put a stop to the legal proceeding.

Since I am being completely honest, I do not see how Ghanaians will benefit from this prosecution. If he is in court, he is unable to fulfil his mandate; therefore, the president and the Attorney General should take immediate action to put an end to this problem so that Ghanaians can proceed with their lives.
