Mr. Titus-Glover visited the Tema Fishing harbor to meet with the security officials in charge at the facility. The security agencies said that the attack came as a surprise to the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) because Ghana has been acclaimed as one of the best ports in terms of security at both Tema and Takoradi.
In an attempt to eliminate these piracy attacks on Ghanaian waters, Daniel Titus-Glover informed that the GPHA will be collaborating with operators at sea to ensure that they comply with safety standards.
Ghana Navy need to be supported in their patrols, and I think that Ghana Maritime Authority, and the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, have to support their boat with fuel to make sure they are able to protect our waters for us and all that. Internally, GPHA security will also be engaging the operators at sea with the support of the marine police and the Ghana Navy.
The General Manager of the Tema Fishing Harbour, Kumi Adjei-Sam noted that they will try to improve the control and regulation of the supply vessels, vessels at anchorage and high seas to mitigate the piracy risks and make the fishing harbour safer for vessels.
