Government To Evacuate 331 Stranded Ghanaians In Dubai
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration says it is working with the authorities in the United Arab Emirates to evacuate some 331 Ghanaians stranded in the Dubai and the United Arab Emirates. According to a press statement also issued by the Ministry, the stranded persons were misled by some agents who promised them jobs in the Dubai and the UAE. The agents have,
however, abandoned these persons, making them easy targets for arrest and detention by law enforcement agencies in the UAE. The Ministry is thus cautioning persons who wish to travel, to do so through appropriate authorities. Even though our stranded compatriots went to the UAE on their own, the government of Ghana is
making necessary efforts in collaboration with the UAE authorities to effect the evacuation of our stranded nationals. The Ministry wishes to seize this opportunity to caution some prospective travellers of the Golf region to be mindful of nefarious activities by unscrupulous agents.
