Gov’t must discredit ISIS tag on Ghana – Minority

An inquiry by Libyan officials has revealed that Ghana is the second largest contributor of foreign fighters to the Islamic State popularly known as ISIS. That’s according to the Minority in Parliament.
According to the NDC MPs, a report of a special inquiry commissioned by the Attorney General of Libya cites Ghanaian migrants as key members of the dreaded group.
Ghana together with Somalia and Mali were ranked in the same category of having between fifty to hundred members of ISIS.
Highlighting the report in a press conference on Tuesday, Ranking member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of Parliament, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa called on government address the issue.
“This dreadful report, highlights of which was presented to a packed room of international journalists in Tripoli a few days ago must necessarily trigger a number of immediate actions from our Government – actions which all Ghanaians must demand in our collective national interest…
“Government must publicly react to this inquiry by the Libyan Attorney General’s Office due to its grave ramifications to Ghana’s image.”
However, the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee in Parliament, Frank Annor Dompreh accused the Minority of being mischievous with sensitive security issues.
According to the Nsawam Adoagyiri Member of Parliament, the Minority should have authenticated the report before going public with it due to the implications it has on the country.
