Fighting terrorism in Ghana is a collective effort, says Anne Sophie

Anne Sophie Avé, the outgoing French Ambassador to Ghana, has said all hands must be on deck in the fight against terrorism in Ghana.

The West Africa Centre for Counter-Extremism (WACCE) a few months ago warned of possible terrorist attacks in Ghana.


Talking to Kwaku Nhyira-Addo on The Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (24 August) Avé said: “To ensure that terrorism does not spread is not a job for the police or the army alone … the state also has a duty to reinstate control that will ensure the standard of living off citizens.”

“Terrorism is a complicated thing because there are so many groups with different agenda … each has its own aims and ideologies.

“When I arrived in Ghana, I knew that terrorists were not active here and so when I arrived my focus was on intelligence sharing… while ensuring that we did not step on each other’s toes,” she said.
