The Director of Academic Affairs of the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College, (GAFCSC), Dr Vladimir Antwi-Danso, has called for the teaching of terrorism to be mainstreamed in schools curriculum.
Speaking at the 11th Annual Interfaith Symposium in Accra, Dr Antwi-Danso, said terrorism is real and has come to stay.
He urged Ghanaians to be vigilant at all times and have knowledge about activities going on around them.
The menace of terrorism has been part of global reality for a long time. This deadly phenomenon has been known not to be prevalent in Africa. However, some events in recent years, have made the continent a major target and hub for religious extremism and terrorism.
Answering questions on the implications and what can be done to prevent it, the Director of Academic Affairs of the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College, Dr. Vladimir Antwi-Danso said terrorism can be prevented if the country’s intelligence force is resourced adequately.

The Executive Director of the Baraka Policy Institute, Dr. Haruna Zagoon-Sayeed also urged religious leaders to embrace the youth and caution them when they are on the wrong path.

The Interfaith Symposium was organised by the Centre for Christian-Muslim Engagement in Africa, of the Akrofi Christaller Institute of Theology, Mission and Culture.

It is to provide Christian, Muslim and Traditional Leaders the opportunity to deliberate on issues of common concern and offer solutions to them.
