In other news,the North East Regional Minister, Mr Solomon Namliit Boar has expressed his worry over the unbridled and frequent use of his identity by cybercriminals to defraud unsuspecting Ghanaians on various social media platforms.
He lamented that he had been a victim of such criminal activities several times in the past six months.
‘I have on a number of occasions fallen victim to cybercrime and in the last six months, people have been scammed through the use of fake social media account that bears my name and pictures.’
Mr Boar made this known during a Regional Cyber Security Sensitisation Programme held by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) in Nalerigu in the North East Region.
According to him, the engagement by the NCSC is a timely one since many individuals have limited knowledge on cybersecurity issues, stressing on the need for participants who were predominately heads of departments at the Regional Coordinating Council to organise sessions for their departmental teams to help improve their knowledge of cybersecurity issues.
