The 2016 Flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Addo-Dankwah Akufo-Addo has condemned the terrorists attack in the French Capital, Paris which has resulted in the death of more than 120 persons.

In a statement on Saturday, he observed that these insane and cowardly acts which have led to the death of dozens of French and other foreign nationals are not justified in any religion or ideology.

Read full statement below:

I received news of the terrorist attacks in Paris, which have left at least 153 people dead so far and several hundreds injured, with utter shock and sadness. I join the rest of the world in sympathising with the families of the dead and the injured.

I wish to condemn, unreservedly, these insane and cowardly acts. No religion or ideology justifies the killing of innocent people, and the world must stand up together against all the atrocities that go on around the world in a twisted understanding of religion or ideology.

President François Hollande and the French people need to be assured with deeds, not just words, that the world stands with France and stands ready to support them in the necessary fight against such evil.

Once again, I send my deepest sympathies to the affected families.

Nana Akufo-Addo
2016 NPP Presidential Candidate
