I wish to bring to the notice of fellow Ghanaians the activities of one Alhaji Ibrahim who is recruiting Ghanaian drivers ostensibly to work in Kuwait but upon their arrival in the country they are not only confronted with the fact that they were recruited to work in Iraq and not Kuwait but also that the $1,300 monthly salary they were made to believe they would be paid is actually only $500. Currently a number of Ghanaians brought in by the said Alhaji are holding out in Kuwait City and refusing to leave for Iraq because of the dangers involved in such a move and the $500 pittance to be paid for the risky job. According to the holdout Ghanaians each of them paid $2000 to the said Alhaji before they were recruited and that there were still more of their colleagues back in Ghana to embark on the trip to Kuwait which in reality has no work for Ghanaian drivers. Alhaji Ibrahim, the connection man, works in colaboration with one Alhaji Abu owner of Ajad Travels & Tours to whom the connection fee of $2000 is paid. These are the telephone numbers of the travel agency---249717, 249716. Alhaji Abu's mobile number is 0244860886. I hope officials who are concerned with this issue and upon reading this message will give it the necessary attention it deserves.
