The Head of the European Union Delegation to Ghana, Diana Acconcia, has observed that the security situation in Ghana is top-notch.
“The general impression is that the security in Ghana is very good”, she told Ayekoo Ayekoo host Nana Romeo on Accra100.5FM on Thursday, 1 July 2021 in an interview.
“I have never felt, personally, threatened or unsafe in Ghana”, she noted.
On the other hand, he noted, “we know that the situation in the region is very challenging”.
“There are the bordering countries to Ghana where, unfortunately, the security situation has deteriorated and there is also a deteriorating situation in the Gulf of Guinea in terms of maritime security”, she pointed out.
She said the EU is working with the government of Ghana to insulate the cocoa-producing country from the instability surrounding her.
“So the situation in the region is very challenging and we are working, as European Union, together with Ghana to ensure that these regional challenges are not going to spill into Ghana”, she added.
