Nana Addo Sympathises With France Over Terrorist Attack

The flagbearer of Ghana’s main opposition New Patriotic Party Nana Akufo-Addo has also condemned the terrorist attacks in Paris, France which has claimed the lives of over 120 people.

In a Facebook post, Nana Akufo-Addo said “I received news of the terrorist attacks in Paris, which have left at least 153 people dead so far and several hundreds injured, with utter shock and sadness.

“I join the rest of the world in sympathizing with the families of the dead and the injured.

“I wish to condemn, unreservedly, these insane and cowardly acts. No religion or ideology justifies the killing of innocent people, and the world must stand up together against all the atrocities that go on around the world in a twisted understanding of religion or ideology.

“President François Hollande and the French people need to be assured with deeds, not just words that the world stands with France and stands ready to support them in the necessary fight against such evil.

“Once again, I send my deepest sympathies to the affected families”.

France has declared a national state of emergency and tightened borders after at least 120 people were killed in a night of gun and bomb attacks in Paris.

Eighty people were reported killed after gunmen burst into the Bataclan concert hall and took dozens hostage.

The siege ended when security forces stormed the building.

People were shot dead at bars and restaurants at five other sites in Paris. Eight attackers are reported to have been killed.
