Russia-Ukraine Attack: Some Ghanaians Have Refused To Come Home- Ayorkor Botchway
Shirley Ayokor Botchwey, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has revealed that some Ghanaians in Ukraine have indicated that they do not want to return home.
She told parents and guardians of Ghanaian students in Ukraine during a conference in Accra on Tuesday, March 1, that the government is evacuating those who are willing to return.
“As of 5 p.m. on February 28th, an estimated 527 Ghanaians had crossed the Ukrainian border into various neighboring nations, and they will soon be with us in Ghana if they are prepared to be evacuated at no cost to them. I mention this because some people have stated that they do not want to return home,” they said.
“So they’ll be on their own in a matter of days because the government can’t keep covering those folks indefinitely.”
“What we’re covering is picking them up and transporting them to a safe location so that they can be returned home. Many of your parents have indicated that you want your children returned home, therefore the government will do that,” she explained.
On Tuesday, March 1, the first group of Ghanaians evacuated from Ukraine landed in Accra.
