Ghana’s first batch of students studying in Ukraine is said to have landed safely in Accra amidst Russia’s invasion.
This comes after a Ghanaian doctor living in Ukraine, Dr. Maame Araba Arkoah, called on the Ghanaian government, through the ministry of foreign affairs, to remove Ghanaian nationals and students from the country if tensions increase.
Students in distress and fear for their lives called to the Ghanaian government to remove them from the war-torn nation as soon as possible.
Social media videos have emerged showing some of these kids quietly sheltering underground to preserve their lives as they await the arrival of a rescue squad from Ghana.
The good news is that the first batch of people evacuated to Romania amid Ukraine’s tensions has landed safely in Ghana’s capital, Accra.
Speaking to the media, one of the students expressed gratitude to Almighty God, the administration, and the ministry of foreign affairs for rescuing them despite Ukraine’s difficulties.
The young gentleman, who disclosed that he has been studying in Ukraine for five years, also reassured Ghanaian families with relatives in Ukraine to be calm, as procedures are being taken to repatriate every Ghanaian person in Ukraine.
