Stranded Ghanaians in Dubai still demand repatriation despite receiving support

Stranded Ghanaians in Dubai still demand repatriation despite ...

Some Ghanaians who travelled to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to seek greener pastures but have become stranded are calling on the government to repatriate them.

Leader of the stranded Ghanaians whose name was given as Moses, in an interview on  Eyewitness News on Thursday, June 4, 2020, said the Ghanaian Consulate in UAE has not attended to their request.

He said, although they have received support from the Prince of the UAE, they still want to be brought back home since they are not getting employment there.

“There’s been a change in my condition which is coming directly from the authorities of the land but we haven’t received any direct benefit from our government (Ghana’s Consulate in Dubai). We’ve also received some help from good samaritans, donors, individuals, the Ghanaian community here and other nationals. We’ve been offered accommodation from the Prince of the land which is far better than where we were but the motive for our plea is to get us home because it is highly difficult to get employment and all of us here want to come home,” he said.

In a related development, other stranded Ghanaians in Lebanon are also pleading with the government to open the borders so they can return.
