Ghana to evacuate stranded citizens abroad but borders remain closed

Jun 01, 2020

President Akufo-Addo has yielded to pressure to evacuate Ghanaians stranded abroad since closure of the country’s borders on March 21.

In his tenth address to the nation since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, Akufo-Addo said “special dispensation is going to be given for their evacuation back to Ghana.”
“They will be subjected to the mandatory quarantine and safety protocols [on their arrival in the country,] he said the Sunday evening address.

However, the country’s air, land and sea borders remain closed to general human traffic until further notice, the president noted.

This is to prevent the importation of the coronavirus into the country.

The news should come as a relief to the likes of Rapper, Sarkodie, who is stuck in the US and has been pushing for a window to be given to citizens to return home.
