Deputy Minister of Defence, Kofi Amankwa-Manu, has asked Ghanaians to remain calm since the country is protected against any possible terrorist attack.
The Deputy Minister who is also the Member of Parliament for Atwima Kwanwoma disclosed that the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) is working hard to protect all the entry points into the country.
He said the GAF would ensure that all our entry points are blocked to persons entering to destabilize the peace.
Answering a question on whether Ghana was safe from terrorist attacks, the Deputy Minister said: “I will say to a very large extent we are safe. Our security forces especially, our men and women in uniform and working 24/7 around the clock to make sure every Ghanaian and our borders are protected.
“I have so much confidence in the Ghana Armed Forces, they will defend this country and our borders. Ghanaians are protected, but we cannot take security for granted.
“Every Ghanaian in spite of the fact that the Ghana Armed Forces are doing the best to make sure our borders are protected and that Ghanaians are protected. We also must be our own security experts. We must look around for any suspicious character trying to do anything to destabilize this nation. As soon as we see anything like that we alert the GAF. We must all assist in this direction to make sure Ghana is protected,” he said.
