“Coming back to Ghana was a mistake” – Evacuated GH students from Ukraine lament

Ghanaian students evacuated from Ukraine express sadness at coming home after the government failed to keep commitments made to them.

They assert that, despite assurances that they would be allowed to attend school, the state has taken no steps to aid them.

This comes months after they retreated from the Ukraine-Russia war.

In an interview with Citi FM in Accra, Philip Bobbie Ansah, President of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) Ukraine Chapter, stated:

“We had a couple of meetings initially and they [government] made us understand that they are very much positioned to help us and secure schools for us.

“They requested data which we made available to them. Everything seems so slow. We do not know what is happening now.”

“We do not know what is causing the delay.”

“Some of us refused to come to Ghana which seems like the best decision because they have opportunities. It now looks like it was a mistake for some of us to come to Ghana.”

The administration evacuated around 1,000 students from several Ukrainian institutions during the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Others refused to return to Ghana, but the government told those who had arrived at the nation that there were ways to assure their education would not be stopped.
