Some social media users on Twitter have expressed their views and support for a campaign launched by government to raise awareness for public vigilance, following threats of terrorism in the sub-Region.
The ‘See Something, Say Something’ campaign seeks to get Ghanaians highly alert so they can report suspicious characters to ensure the nation is protected.
In view of this, people have been encouraged to join in fighting possible terrorist attacks by creating peaceful, lively and secured communities across the country.
At the launch on Tuesday, May 24, the Special Advisor to the President, Yaw Osafo-Maafo, called on the citizenry to get involved in efforts being made by the government and the security agencies.
Any person who notices anything unusual about the security situation, should inform the various agencies by dialing 999 (toll-free) or using any of the security agencies’ phone numbers or social media handles.
Below are some reactions on Twitter:
This #SeeSomethingSaySomething campaign in the midst of security mistrust will be a big threat.— 🇬🇭Proverbial Tweeter (@GKofiAmoah) May 25, 2022
My prayer is that, it is not used to target and needlessly arrest people.
On a normal day, an informant can’t trust the men in uniform.
I only have to mind my business. #JoySMS

There have been growing concerns of terrorist activities within the Subregion with almost all neighbouring countries reporting cases of terrorist attacks. Ghana would not be safe from such attacks if we don’t take pragmatic measures. #999ForTerrorism#SeeSomethingSaySomething pic.twitter.com/vIP00z7tmb— Kodzo Kumah Asante (@KumahKodzo) May 25, 2022

We always do not hear from the Ministry of National Security when issues arise but I must commend them this time around for creating the awareness program as we need to fight terrorism on all fronts . #999ForTerrorism#SeeSomethingSaySomething— Agbovi Gideon (@politicalgideon) May 25, 2022
A lot of times, we wait for things to happen before we actually remember that oh we saw this, meanwhile we could have tipped it off to the police before the harm was done. Let’s all try and report anything suspicious #999forTerrorism #SeeSomethingSaySomething— African Boy Gh (@AfricanBoyGh1) May 25, 2022
The government through the National Security has put in place measures to prevent any terrorist attack on our country. It is therefore our part to report anything we see suspicious to 999#999ForTerrorism#SeeSomethingSaySomething— Mr Joe Big (@MrJoeBig1) May 25, 2022

#SeeSomethingSaySomething Say anything if you see something that shouldn’t be there or if someone’s behavior doesn’t seem proper. You can lessen the chance of harm and help make your neighborhood secure by being vigilant. #999forTerrorism pic.twitter.com/9edBOXSqgz— Honey cheeks (@Honeycheeks71) May 25, 2022
Crowded places, events, public transport and iconic locations throughout the country are some examples of locations that could be potential targets for terrorists.#999ForTerrorism #SeeSomethingSaySomething— fiifi Benson (@fiifiBenson5) May 25, 2022
Anyone who notices anything strange about a security incident should call 999 (toll-free) or use any of the security agencies’ phone numbers or social media handles to alert the proper agencies. #SeeSomethingSaySomething #999forTerrorism pic.twitter.com/YFrOt5Bdby— Honey cheeks (@Honeycheeks71) May 25, 2022
