Terrorism: Govt should cut down on politics and resource the border posts – Irbad

A security analyst, Irbad Ibrahim has appealed to the government to provide the necessary logistics and infrastructure to the various security agencies that operate on Ghana’s borders.

Speaking on Onua 95.1 FM’s “Yensempa” programme today, the security analyst said the move would enhance the operations of the security forces in the face of successive terrorist attacks in neighboring countries.

He indicated that successive governments mostly concentrate on investing the available funds and logistics in political activities, rather than resourcing security agencies to ensure peace and orderliness on the borders of the country.

Furthermore, he observed that corruption has become the order of the day among the security forces that are stationed on the borders of the country. He however conceded that family pressures mostly lead security personnel at the borders to engage in corrupt act.

The security analyst also applauded the move by the Select Committee on Defense and Interior of Parliament to purchase drones (a remotely controlled aerial vehicle or flying robot) to help monitor and observe activities on the country’s borders.
