His assurances come after Canada and the UK warned Ghana of possible terror attacks on the nation.


Their warnings followed a rising number of terrorist attacks in Mali, Cote d’ Ivoire, Nigeria, Burkina Faso and some other West African countries in recent years.

A post from the Canadian government warned its citizens in Ghana that “terrorist targets could include shopping malls, government buildings, public areas such as bars, restaurants, hotels and sites frequented by Westerners. Be aware of your surroundings in public places”.

The UK government also said “while there have been no recent attacks in Ghana, terrorist groups in west Africa have demonstrated their capability and intent by mounting attacks.”
