YEN.com.gh recently reported on how a counter-terrorist unit of the ministry of national security is about embarking on an exercise to prepare against any terrorist act in Ghana.

This exercise, we gather, is going to be in the form of a real-life event where security officials will mimic real-life professional scenarios for an objective assessment of the capabilities of Counter Terrorism respond agencies.

But speaking on this exercise on the floor of parliament, member of parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa made a case for the need for parliamentarians to be informed about this exercise.

Ghana remains one of the most peaceful African economies which has not suffered the brunt of terrorism.

YEN.com.gh has reported on how the minister in charge of national security, Albert Kan-Dapaah, warned against impending terrorist attacks against the country.

Meanwhile, president of the republic, Nana Akufo-Addo has called for a unified effort in combating cases of terrorism in the sub-region.

Speaking during a one-day visit to Nigeria, the president argued that aside from the progress made by various African economies in the fight against terrorism, there is the need for some form of unification.
