The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has made it a project to seek respite for African students living in China’s Hubei Province, the epicentre of the Coronavirus – COVID 19 as soon as possible.

It has, therefore, served notice it will soon engage with the World Health Organisation and the Chinese Embassy in Ghana to devise means and accelerate actions in reaching out to the stranded students.

It is reported that there are over 4,600 African students including Ghanaians, Nigerians, South Africans, Kenyans and Ugandans in the City of Wuhan in the Hubei Province, many of who are seeking to be evacuated.

So far, the disease has affected nearly 100,000 persons and killed over 3,000.

The situation has left many of the students traumatized for which reason they are constantly pushing to be sent back to their respective countries.

In a Facebook post Monday, February 24, 2020, the CPP further gave the assurance that it will soon begin advocacy to get the Foreign Affair Ministry to act.

“It is unclear what measures are being put in place to safeguard the wellbeing of students who are currently quarantined in the affected cities. Respective Africa governments are yet to come out with any pragmatic measures to evacuate these student trapped in China.”

“It is on this sad note that the Convention People’s Party extends our solidarity with the students to keep hope alive,” the CPP said.

“The party will soon embark on advocacy to get relevant institutions such as the World Health Organisation, the Chinese Embassy, the Foreign Affair Ministry to expedite response and offer assistance to them,” it intimated.

While at that, the party has advised the students to take the public service education from the WHO on the COVID 19 seriously.
