President John Mahama has admonished Ghanaians not to be complacent in guarding against religious extremists who may infiltrate the country.

The President pointed out that the call for peace is important due to the surge in global terrorist activities.

Speaking at a ceremony to celebrate the birthday of Prophet Mohammed at Aboabo in Kumasi, President Mahama said: “It is important that we in Ghana guard against complacency and ensure that no one sows the seeds of discord, of rebellion among our youth through questionable teachings and indoctrinations.”

He maintained that Islam is a religion of peace but “unfortunately, some misguided elements have desecrated its beautiful image in order to promote their wicked, terrorist agenda.”

“These fundamentalists do not discriminate in their choice of victims. They kill children, women and men, young and old and they attack people of all religious persuasions,” he added.

President Mahama assured Ghanaians that the state’s security agencies “are firm and are doing everything possible to keep us safe.”

“We must all support them to be able to realise this objective. We must remain a nation that is united,” he said.
