Ghana is on high alert in case of a future terrorist attack –Kan-Dapaah 

Albert Kan-Dapaah, Ghana’s Minister of National Security, has stated that the country has never been subjected to a terrorist attack.

This, he noted, does not imply that the country’s security procedures are being relaxed.

On Monday, April 4, he said these when answering questions in Parliament about Ghana’s security situation.

“[We] stay on high alert to prevent terrorist infiltration,” Mr. Kan-Dapaah stated. preventative measures, and anti-terrorist operations around the country’s borders All state security services prioritize protecting the country, and we will remain watchful.

“Apart from Burkina Faso and Mali, there have been a few terrorist acts in Cote d’Ivoire, roughly seven in Benin, and one in Togo recently.”

“Ghana has not yet been attacked, but we believe we must maintain vigilance at all times to ensure that if an attack occurs, we will be able to handle it. This does not rule out the possibility that terrorists are planning an attack; we believe they are, and we believe we must do everything possible to ensure they are defeated.”

“At the start of 2022, we were all optimistic that we would be able to save the global economy from the ring of coronavirus epidemic…,” he continued.

The Russia-Ukraine conflict, on the other hand, has pushed the global economy even deeper into the abyss of economic disaster.

“Coups in [certain West African nations], such as Mali and Burkina Faso, have exacerbated the problem.”

“I’d want to emphasize that Ghana is reasonably stable, despite a variety of external and domestic dangers that threaten security and stability.

“Crime, land and chieftaincy issues, piracy, and secessionist activity have all been important dangers,” he stated, adding that “a variety of steps have been introduced to cope with risks.”

Improvements to highway patrols and night patrols, as well as the deployment of horse patrol activities, are among these efforts.
