- Benin has deported hundreds of Ghanaians to make way for the construction of a port
- NADMO officials say they will be expecting more deportations soon
The republic of Benin has deported over 108 Ghanaians after their homes got pulled down for the construction of a habour.
The said deportees arrived in the Central Region and also got registered and processed by the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) and the Ghana Health Service (GHS) for easy reintegration with their families.
"We've been able to identify the communities where they live in Ghana. We are expecting a total number of 336. The only challenge we have is that, we don't actually know when they are coming. To be honest, we received the information last night, at 2am," Spokesperson of the NADMO, Eric Arthur revealed in an interview with the media.
Meanwhile, the foreign affairs minister, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway is yet to comment on the development as talks with the Benin government begins.
