Evacuate Ghanaian students in Ukraine- NDC to govt

Ghana’s biggest opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC) has urged government to take urgent steps to evaluate Ghanaian students stranded in Ukraine caused by the invasion of Russia.

A statement signed and issued by National Youth Organiser of the NDC George Opare Addo said “As a matter of urgency, we call on government to put in place measures to relocate Ghanaian students to a safer zone in the region or bring them back home. The ongoing stand off between Ukraine and Russia, and it’s attendant military actions must not be taken for granted more-so when Ghanaian lives are at stake”.

EVACUATE GHANAIAN STUDENTS IN UKRAINE

Accra, 25th February, 2022-In light of the ongoing invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the accompanying military activities, the Youth Wing of the National Democratic Congress calls on government to prioritize evacuating Ghanaians especially students caught up in the crossfire. The stories and videos coming out of Ukraine is cringing and we cannot afford to lose any Ghanaian in the skirmishes.

This follows similar actions taken by other countries who prioritize lives of its citizens. The fact that government has remained silent on this issue for nearly three (3) days is very telling.

As a matter of urgency, we call on government to put in place measures to relocate Ghanaian students to a safer zone in the region or bring them back home. The ongoing stand off between Ukraine and Russia, and it’s attendant military actions must not be taken for granted more-so when Ghanaian lives are at stake.

The National Democratic Congress joins similar calls made by the National Union of Ghanaian Students (NUGS) and it’s sister body in Ukraine, urging government to quickly evacuate students studying in the country.

This is not a time for political indecisiveness and passiveness. Government must fully use its diplomatic contacts and resources to ensure our students are safe and kept away from harm’s way. Government must announce a plan on it intends to execute this very critical assignment.

While we urge government to do all that is necessary to bring our countrymen home, we call on our Consulate in Ukraine to start mobilizing students and offering them shelter in the midst of ongoing developments.

Signed

George Opare Addo,
National Youth Organizer,
National Democratic Congress.
