Meanwhile, Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has criticised the government for asking Ghanaian students in Ukraine to seek their own shelter following the Russian-Ukraine war.
The MP, who was in Romania following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, said the visit allows him to closely assess the conditions of the students and to better understand how Ghana can be more helpful to them.
Hon Ablakwa said evacuations of Ghanaians will continue and "we would also never forget their colleagues who remain trapped in Ukraine, particularly those in the city of Sumy".
