He strongly condemned the deadly shooting attack in New Zealand’s mosque by saying it a ‘lowly acts of cowardice’. Mr. Mahama tweeted: “Our hearts are with all victims, their families and the people of New Zealand following the cowardly terrorist attacks against Muslims at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand”.
He further said there should be no place for terrorists in the world. Such people hide in the cloak of ideology or creed. They should be stopped to affect innocent citizens on the basis of their faith. “We pray for healing & strength for the wounded. May their spirits never be broken by these lowly acts of cowardice”, Mr. Mahama said.
