A stakeholder engagement intended to foster an inclusive and value-based dialogue on the implementation of the Country’s National Security is held in Aburi, Eastern Region of Ghana.
The dialogue is focused on creating an understanding of the strategy, identifying its priority areas and collaboratively developing a framework for the implementation of these priority areas, including how to involve stakeholders in the process.
Security chiefs, civil society organisations, security experts and government officials participated in the two-day dialogue.
Security challenges examined included robberies, kidnappings, terrorism and Political Vigilantism among others. Participants are expected to draw a roadmap on how to tackle these challenges.
This is the fourth dialogue organised by National Security under the Akufo-Addo led government.
Government sources say such dialogues are crucial in developing acceptable methods for tackling contemporary security challenges.
A roadmap for engaging with key security constituencies is expected at the end of the dialogue.
The forum which is being attended by the various security heads and ministers comes on the back of the violence that characterised the Ayawaso West-Wuogon by-election in Accra.
Other attendee were the minister of state in charge of National security Bryan Acheampong who deployed the masked men who caused the mayhem during the by-election.
