Ghana’s Ministry of National Security has launched a citizen sensitization campaign it expects will help in creating awareness and alert the people about possible terrorist attacks.
The launch of the national citizen sensitization campaign follows a wave of recent terrorist attacks in neighboring countries in the sub region, the recent in Togo.
The campaign has been dubbed “See something, Say Something”. It will involve educating and encouraging the public to freely report any suspicious activities related to acts of terror to the appropriate security agencies.
Minister for Information Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, speaking at the launch, urged the media to help spread the message and push the campaign through a total mobilization of the larger populace.
“If we will be successful in combating the threats we face, we need the total mobilization of our people to recognize first of all those risks, to be alert and play their part in protecting our motherland”, he stated.
He also noted that the media has a major role to play in ensuring the success of the campaign.
“For this campaign to be successful, it will take you my colleagues in the media to help us do a deep professional sustained exercise of public education”.Share on:
