Builsa North lawmaker, James Agalga, has said in an interview MyNewsGh.com monitored that there are emerging security threats that require a different approach.
Speaking with Dzifa Bampoh on the First Take on 3FM, The Member of the Defense and Interior Committee of Parliament said that it is not enough to have a well-crafted policy in place to deal with security threats by the National Security.
Commenting on this strategy, Mr Agalga who was a Deputy Minister for the Interior in the Mahama administration said “The launch of the national security strategy is good for the management of our country’s security because we find ourselves in a very crucial time.
“The hitherto, defensive posture that we adopted in response to the security threats that we were exposed to as a country, clearly, cannot be the approach because there are emerging security threats which require us to adopt a different approach.
“I think that largely, the strategy, what it does is to afford us the opportunity to revise our responses in present times to deal with the security challenges that confront us. So, to that extend I will say the strategy itself is a good thing.
“The minister deserves commendation for ensuring that the strategy was finally launched. I must say that the approach was an all-inclusive one so if we now have a strategy it is not something that somebody sitting somewhere crafted for us.
