#GhanaGist: Guantanamo Bay prisoners in Ghana: Ghanaians should not be complacent – British High Commissioner to Ghana warns

The British High Commissioner to Ghana Jon Benjamin is advising Ghanaians not to be complacent but instead by vigilant following the decision by government to house two former Guantanamo Bay prisoners in Ghana.

“It takes few people to create carnage and no one should be complacent. We should be very vigilant because it’s a real threat to us all.

“This is essentially a bilateral issue between US, and Ghana. Here we are in January, the election here is 7th November, we are already in election season in some sense. What I won’t be doing is allowing anyone to drag us to make party political points on either side,” he told Jay Foley and Jeremie on the LBC Morning show on Live FM.
