Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama, has condemned the terrorist attacks which rocked France on Friday.
The president in a statement described the attacks, which claimed the lives of about 120 people- as unworthy, and pledged his support and offered his condolences to the nation at this difficult time.
“On behalf of the people of Ghana, I send to the families of the victims of these despicable attacks, our condolences. May those who survived be comforted and healed. Ghana stands by a grieving France in this time of difficulty.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration is working with the Ghana Embassy in Paris to update Government on further developments and also work with the French Authorities to ensure the safety of Ghanaians in France,” reads the statement copied to the French Embassy in Accra.
France President Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency in the country following the attacks which killed dozens, describing it as “unprecedented” and the worst to hit the country since the Second World War.
“To all those who have seen these awful things, I want to say we are going to lead a war which will be pitiless,” President Hollande said after visiting the Bataclan concert hall—one of the sites of the attack, on Saturday.
