Terrorists not far from Ghana; pray more- Speaker

Speaker of Parliament Edward Doe Adjaho is calling for prayers to avert a possible terror attacks on Ghana.

At a thanksgiving church service of the First Sky Group which was also the handing over of 60 church buildings to the Assemblies of God Secretariat at Ho over the week end, the Speaker said “terrorists are not far from Ghana,” and that Ghanaians must go down on their knees in prayer.

His comments come in the wake of terror attacks in Burkina Faso which claimed about 27 lives last Friday.

Already there is a huge controversy in Ghana over the admission of two gitmo detainees who are suspected to be terrorists.

Doe Adjaho believes the terrorist threat to Ghana is alarmingly imminent.

“As I stand before you, especially the men of Ghana, I will ask for special prayers for this country. Those of you who were listening to the news, you heard what happened in Burkina Faso. The terrorists are not very far from us. 27 people died at a hotel in Burkina Faso

“It has happened in Mali, it has happened in Nigeria, it has happened in Burkina Faso only yesterday. Where is the next point.

“We need to pray for this country. If there is any time we have to draw closer to God, this is the time,” he said.

Security expert with the Kofi Annan International Peace Keeping Training Centre Dr Kwasi Aning also believes there is a potential threat of terror attacks in other West African countries, including Ghana.

He is convinced the recent terror attacks in the West African subregion is a struggle of power between the two terror groups-ISIS and Al-Qaeda.

He called on the national security to up and doing and increase its intelligence work across the borders.
