Russia-Ukraine War: Okudzeto Ablakwa arrives in Bucharest, Romania, to meet Ghanaian students
Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa, a member of Ghana’s Foreign Affairs Committee, has come in Bucharest, Romania, which shares a southern border with Ukraine, to see and interact with Ghanaian students who have fled conflict zones in Ukraine.
Read Okudzeto Ablakwa’s eye witnessed accounts at Bucharest in Romania:
I arrived in Bucharest, Romania this morning, which shares a southern border with Ukraine, to see our Ghanaian students who have fled the turmoil in Ukraine.
As I engage them personally, the visit allows me to closely analyze their conditions and gain a greater understanding of how our nation might be more beneficial to them from their unique perspective.
I do this not only because it is a constitutional requirement for legislators to exercise oversight, but also because it is a higher obligation of our shared humanity and nationhood.
Romania now has the biggest number of Ghanaian students, estimated to be 200, who will be evacuated to Ghana.
The incredible stories of survival and tenacity told by our brave compatriots have tremendously inspired me.
I commend our diplomatic mission in Prague’s Ahmed Tijani Abubakr for his outstanding consular services, which have been recognized by the students.
The Romanians have been incredible in their generosity. They owe our country a duty of gratitude.
It was a wonderful honor for me to feed our brave compatriots, provide messages of optimism for a better future, and make a little payment to the NUGS-Ukraine welfare account.
I informed our beloved brethren that the entire nation, led by the government, is praying for them and standing with them in unity. Rescue operations will continue, and we will never forget about their colleagues who are still stranded in Ukraine, notably in Sumy.
We will provide the entire safety and rehabilitation of our beloved folks as one nation with a common humanity.
