Evacuation Of Ghanaians From Ukraine Is Reason Why We Need E-levy – Afenyo Markin. May 2022

The minority leader and MP for Tamale South constituency; Haruna Iddrisu has invoked order 72 of the Standing Orders to declare urgency.

According to the minority leader, the order is a “call on the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Interior and Finance to work together to take urgent steps to ensure the safety of Ghanaian students in Ukraine and to work towards the immediate evacuation of Ghanaian students.”

Hon. Haruna Iddrisu also asserted that this must be given an immediate attention as it concerns safety of Ghanaian citizens in Ukraine.”We also know the number ot Ghanaian students in Ukraine. Quite a number studying medicine, probably some even sponsored by Members of Parliament.The situation in Ukraine is very worrying. Given the situation of a near hot war in Ukraine and Russia not yielding to the diplomatic manoeuvres of the West, particularly that led by the French President Macron and many others”, he stated.

After the minority leader’s statement, Mr.Afenyo Markin; Mp for Effutu constituency and Deputy Majority Leader also gave a response. He rather requested the minority to support the ruling government in passing the e-levy bill. According to him, the government needs money to cater for certain expenses which includes the evacuation of Ghanaians stuck in Ukraine.

He also disclosed that the  crisis from Russia- Ukraine banter is adversely affecting developing countries like Ghana. He further asserted the government needs money to cover the evacuation of Ghanaians in Ukraine as requested by the minority.

“The call to evacuate Ghanaian citizens from Ukraine will come at a cost. No European country will evacuate our citizens for us. America will not do that. There is going to be pressure on the limited resources that we have… Of course, Deputy Minority Leader, you have not spoken into the microphone, but if you are talking about E-levy, this is the more important reason why we e need it”, he said.
