LIBERIAN GOVERNMENT DELEGATION TO REPATRIATE STRANDED CITIZENS FROM GHANA

Date:

MONROVIA – A Liberian government delegation is set to arrive in Ghana on Monday, May 12, 2024, to kickstart the repatriation process of 4,323 stranded Liberians. These individuals have been affected by the demolition of the Buduburam Camp in Ghana.

The delegation, consisting of representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Liberia Refugees Repatriation Resettlement Commission (LRRRC), Ministry of Information Cultural Affairs and Tourism, Ministry of Gender Children and Social Protection, and the Liberia Broadcasting Corporation, will oversee the return of the stranded Liberians.

LRRRC Executive Director, Patrick T. Worzie, expressed gratitude to the government and people of Ghana for their cooperation in facilitating the repatriation process. He emphasized the importance of ensuring that Liberians return home safely and with dignity, ready to contribute to the country’s development.

Worzie also commended the government of Ivory Coast for granting passage through their borders for the stranded Liberians’ return journey.

Upon their arrival, the repatriated Liberians will be temporarily hosted in phases at the Regional Transit Center in CARI, Bong County. Here, they will receive counseling before being reintegrated into their respective communities.

The stranded Liberians have been residing in Buduburam Camp since the 1990 civil crisis. They are expected to return to one hundred host communities in thirteen counties across Liberia.

The Liberian government, through the LRRRC, is appealing to humanitarian organizations, local and international NGOs, to provide support for the repatriation process, ensuring a smooth transition for the returning citizens.
