Budumburam Residents Threaten To Fight Against Demolition
Angry residents of the Budumburam camp popularly known as the Liberia camp in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region, have threatened to defy a directive to move out of the camp by today Thursday, September 30.
Some of the residents said, nothing will make them move out of the camp adding that they are not criminals as claimed by Chiefs and Elders of the area.
But Government says the time has come for the place to be developed into a community with modern school, markets, proper layouts and other social amenities.
After the beginning of the Liberian civil war in 1989, the Ghanaian government established the Buduburam refugee camp in 1990 in response to the arrival of displaced Liberians in the country.
After the final ceasefire agreement of the war in 2003, UNHCR repeatedly urged the repatriation of refugees to Liberia.
