I don’t know – Akufo-Addo on presence or otherwise of Al-Qaeda troops in Ghana

President Akufo-Addo says he has no information on the presence or otherwise of troops of militant organisation, Al-Qaeda in Ghana.

He said this while hosting the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris at the Jubilee House.

This followed questions posed by a journalist who works with the New York Times at a press conference held as part of Madam Harris’ three-day visit to the country.

“The presence of Al-Qaeda in Ghana? I don’t know. Formally, we don’t have any information to that effect, it may well be that there are cells and others already in the country, but those are matters that the security agencies are very much on top of and we are hoping that there will be no Al-Qaeda presence in Ghana,” he said this on Monday, March 27, 2023.

She was in the company of her husband, Douglas Emhoff and other top officials in the US government.

Madam Harris was met by Ghana’s Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia at the Kotoka International Airport amid traditional drumming and cheers from some school pupils.

From Accra, her next stop will be Tanzania and Zambia.
