The Minority in Parliament has vowed not to give up in putting pressure on the government to evacuate Ghanaian students from coronavirus-stricken China.
A Citi News report indicated that on Tuesday, February 11, minority issued a three-day ultimatum to the government to evacuate all Ghanaian nationals living in China.
According to the minority, many countries concerned about the safety of their nationals, have evacuated them from that country.
Minority Spokespersons on Foreign Affairs and Health, Kobina Mintah Akandoh, in an interview with Citi News, said the Committee would not rest until all Ghanaians in China are brought home.
“Today, we are expecting the officials from the Ministry of Health to come and brief our Committee. The only assurance I can give is that we are not going to relent until the Ghanaians in China, especially Wuhan are evacuated to Ghana.”
“Today I will contact leadership and draw leadership’s attention to the fact that tomorrow ends the three-day ultimatum and the next line of action will be determined from there. Some of the students tell me they are in a very difficult condition and even some of them, how to get food to eat is a problem so it is not any good news at all.”
In other news, the Ministry of Health headed by Kwaku Agyeman Manu has stated that Ghanaian students in China would be evacuated to Ghana if they found it necessary.
According to a report filed by GBCGhanaonline, the ministry assured Ghanaians that those in China are safe from the deadly coronavirus since no case has been recorded yet.
In a statement signed by Kwaku Agyeman Manu, in all of the government’s deliberations with the WHO, West African Health Organisation and the US Center for Disease Control, evacuation is yet to be recommended.
