President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said he trusts the capability of Ghana’s security agencies to tackle the secessionists group in the Volta region.
“It is just a handful of people; these secessionists. We will deal with them. I have no doubt about it but there is no value for this country if I start making hysterical statements.
“ I trust the security agencies, the armed forces, the police, I trust their leadership and intelligence agencies and I know they are all working very hard to make sure that this matter is dealt with as quickly as possible,” the president told Kumasi based Hello FM on Wednesday September 30.
