Ghana Not Ready For Togolese Refugees

Listen to article

The minister for information, Mr Daniel Kweku Botwe, has stated that it would be unwise and unfortunate for anyone to expect Ghana to put up measures to accommodate refugees from neighbouring Togo whilst efforts are being made to compel the contesting parties to accept the outcome of the election.

He said the best thing would be to wish for an incident-free and fair election that will see the election of a president who will be acceptable by all.

Mr Botwe said this yesterday when the paper enquired from him to know whether the Government was expecting any influx of refugees from Togo owing to the fact that the opposition in that country has promised hell fire if Mr Faure Gnassigbe is declared the winner of the election.

He told the paper that it is the hope of the Government that the people in Togo accept the outcome of the election as a true reflection of the will of the people and allow peace to prevail in the entire sub-region, stressing, “we can only hope that sanity prevails in the country.”
