Ranking Member of Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has described the Akufo-Addo led government as the most insensitive and uncoordinated with regards to its policy on stranded Ghanaians abroad.

His comment comes in the wake of travel restrictions in countries all over the world amid concerns of the spread of the novel coronavirus and the subsequent deportation of some 245 Ghanaians from Kuwait.

No politician should be agitating for ex-gratia at this traumatic time – Okudzeto Ablakwa

According to the North Tongu MP, he is surprised that President Akufo-Addo who once served as a Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Minister would act the way he is doing towards stranded Ghanaians.

Mr. Ablakwa venting his frustrations in a Facebook post said “I must emphasize, however, that the Akufo-Addo-led Government’s policy on stranded Ghanaians abroad has been most insensitive, uncoordinated and absolutely inept. This is quite surprising for a President who once served as Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration.”

“If Government had listened to some of us a while back, we could have engaged in high-level bilateral negotiations with counterpart Governments to assist us in bringing back home stranded Ghanaians instead of opening our airport to the many empty chartered flights over the last two months,” Mr. Ablakwa said.
