The speaker’s comments come on the back of the Saturday attack on Burkina Faso which led to the death of 28 and left several others injured in its wake.
There are fears the attacks may be extended to Ghana as it shares border with the French-speaking country. Reports say residents who live on Ghana’s border to Burkina Faso have started fleeing the area out of fear.
Speaking in Ho in the Volta region, the former Keta South MP said terrorism is closer to Ghana but could be averted by prayers.
“The terrorists are not very far from us; 27 people died at a Hotel in Burkina Faso. It has happened in Mali, Nigeria and Burkina Faso. Where is the next point? We need to pray for this country. We have to draw closer to our God. This is the time. I have tried and tested my God and He has always worked for me,” he stated.
Meanwhile, there is public outcry in the country following the decision by the Mahama-led administration to provide shelter for two former inmates of Guantanamo Bay who were arrested on suspicion of their association with terrorist groups .
