The Government on Friday announced that evacuation of Ghanaians stranded in foreign countries following the outbreak of the COVID-19, would be extended to other parts of the world.

The Kuwaiti Government last May deported some 230 Ghanaians from gulf nation.

Ms Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration told Parliament, in Osu Accra, that, “following the return from Kuwait, I am pleased to inform this august House about Government’s efforts to extend the evacuation exercise to other parts of the world.”

The Minister’s announcement was part of her response to an urgent question by Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Ranking Member on the Committee of Foreign Affairs and MP for North Tongu on plans by the Ministry for evacuating Ghanaians stranded abroad following the closure of the nation’s borders in a bid to prevent the importation of Covid-19.

Ms Botchwey said the exercise would be done in phases considering logistical constraints, and announced the schedule of the next phases of arrivals.

Under Phase Two, being done by charter flights, seven persons have been evacuated from Lagos, Nigeria on 5th June; 15 were to be evacuated from Mauritania on the 5th June; and on the 6th June, five from Turks and Calcos; 35 from Washington DC; 14 from Burkina Faso; and four from Mauritania on 9th June, 2020.

Phase three would be assisted by KLM Charter flights, and there would be 434 and additional one FSO; 299 from New York on 24 June 2020; and 300 from Washington DC on 28th June.

“It should be noted that these arrangements are subject to other requirements in the host countries, which may result in changes in the scheduled dates of arrival,” the Minister said.

She announced that negotiations were currently underway between Ghana’s Mission in Beijing and Ethiopian Airlines for the evacuation of some 675 stranded Ghanaians in China and Ghana’s Mission in Abu Dhabi has initiated discussions with the United Arab Emirates authorities for the evacuation of over 500 of Ghanaian nationals stranded in that country.

Similarly, the Foreign Affairs and RegionalIntegration Ministry has arranged with the Scholarships Secretariat and the National Covid-19 Task Force to evacuate by STC buses, 141 Ghanaian students who completed their language proficiency courses in Benin on 13th June 2020.

The Minister said further arrangements were in progress to assist with the evacuation of stranded Ghanaians in other countries as Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Italy, South Africa, Spain, Netherlands, Niger, Norway, Kenya, Ethiopia and Switzerland.

Ms Botchwey said priority might be given to urgent evacuation requests that required minimal Government intervention, such as pre-arranged charter awaiting flights awaiting landing clearance from Government.

Meanwhile, Mr Ablakwa later at a press conference called for consular assistance for the stranded Ghanaians, particularly in Dubai, as they attracted the attention of the security agencies in affected countries.

“The videos of the ordeals of some of our women are heart-wrenching. Some of them have not changed their clothes of taken a shower for two weeks,” he lamented.

He appealed to the Government to for a more conclusive data collection for a fair and accurate picture of how many Ghanaians were to be evacuated, and a budget line in the Foreign Affairs Ministry for stranded Ghanaians.

Furthermore, the Government should arrange other means of housing the returnees rather than in hotels, for which he complained that their rates were high.

He suggested the use of accommodation facilities not being currently used in the universities and Senior High Schools.

The Ministry for Railways Development says works on the Tema to Mpakadan railway line will not be completed on schedule as expected.

The ongoing rail project was supposed to be completed in August this year but was halted after 70 workers on the construction team tested positive for COVID-19.

The Minister for Railways Development, Joe Ghartey, in a Citi News interview, indicated that his outfit is in talks with the contractors to determine a new date of completion.

“This morning the Ghana Railway Authority met with and asked them to give us their proposals for their new timelines but like all the contractors that we work with have said to me that all the construction that nature is like a car that you can just switch it on and off.”

“When demobilise to remobilise, it takes time and so we’ve lost significant time. For those who say it will be completed with pace, that is not the not situation. In December, we said it will be completed in August but even the nose mask you are wearing must show you that the world has changed and we have all experienced this unfortunate incidence and has changed our world completely and they also had people who had the virus so they had to stop working,” he said.

About the Tema to Mpakadan railway

The Tema-Mpakadan rail line is part of the 1,000km Ghana-Burkina Faso Railway Interconnectivity Project which will link Ghana from Tema to Burkina Faso’s capital Ouagadougou.

In December 2019, the Minister disclosed that 28 kilometres of track have been laid, with the contractor assuring that 40 more kilometres of the track will be completed by the end of this year.

The Project, when completed will be a modern, standard gauge rail line

The two countries had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in January 2017 in Ouagadougou to kick-start the project.

According to the plan, some 800km of the railway line will be in Ghana’s territory while the remaining 200km will be on Burkinabe soil.

The Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) has shot down an invitation by the Parliament of Ghana to appear before the house on June 9 to brief the legislature on its plans for the upcoming December polls.

The minority in parliament has since April 30 been mounting pressure to have the EC summoned before the house but that has not happened yet though majority leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has indicated there are still ongoing engagements.

However, he said an earlier planned June 9 date has failed because the EC will be out in some districts for other assignments which will end on June 14, thus a new date has been fixed on June 16 for them to appear before the house.

“The EC has assured they will be here on the 16th, I was trying to pull them to be here on the 9th of June, that is this Tuesday. That had been my own stand… they have indicated to me they have to fan out to various places in the districts to pursue a cause and that they will be coming back the Sunday leading to the 16”, he said.

He added that while the engagements were ongoing “a few issues came up”, some of which he mentioned the order by the Supreme Court for the EC to file the legal basis for which they want to exclude the old voters’ ID cards in the compilation of the new voters’ register.

The EC is expected to update the house on how it is going about the electoral processes in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
