Take precautions visiting Abuja, Ghana advises citizens



FCT

The Republic of Ghana has issued a travel advisory to its citizens travelling to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Ghana, made this known in its latest security update on Abuja on Wednesday.

According to Ghana, the travel advisory became necessary due to the highly unpredictable security situation in the nation’s capital.

The travel alert is coming on the heels of a security alert issued a few weeks ago by the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and other countries warning that terrorists may launch attacks in Abuja.

The Ghanaian government advised its citizens to take precautionary measures as they travel, noting that it will continue to monitor the security situation.

The advisory read, “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration wishes to inform the travelling public about security developments in Abuja, Nigeria, and the subsequent directive by local authorities to hotels operating in residential buildings to shut down.

“Accordingly, the public is advised to avoid non-essential travel to Abuja, due to the unpredictable security situation in the city, and the high danger of terrorism, criminality, inter-communal conflict, armed attacks, and kidnappings.

“Whilst advising travellers who must travel out of necessity to Abuja to take precautionary measures, the Ministry will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates to the public when the situation improves.”
