A 7-member delegation led by the Minister of State for the United Kingdom (UK) Armed Forces, Hon James Heappey
called on the Defence Minister at The Square. This was to discuss the security situation along Ghana’s borders and the way forward as well as issues of mutual interest.
The discussion also highlighted on terrorism in Africa, crossborder security matters and the progress made by the British Armed Forces in collaborating with the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) for protection around Ghana’s borders.
The Minister for Defence, Hon Dominic Nitiwul, said, efforts are being put in place by the Ministry to provide security
around the borders by training more personnel in intelligence gathering.
He added that, the porous nature of Ghana’s borders has become very alarming and therefore requires modern ammunitions and machines for quick response to emergencies by the security services positioned along the borders of the country.
Hon James Heappey said the UK was ready to help Ghana monitor and combat terrorism. He assured that with the necessary support to Ghana and also in collaboration with some neighbouring countries, the country will make great strides in combating terrorism.
