Foreign Minister Dee Maxwell Kemayah made a touchdown in Accra where he held taks with his Ghanaian Foreign Ministry counterparts and the leadership at the Buduburam Camp.
The talks brought significant changes to planned demolition exercises by the Ghanaian authorities.
The Liberian leadership through its head Dennis Gwion praised the Liberian Foreign Minister, terming his visit timely and impressive as Liberians still try to get settled within the Ghanaian Community after a traumatizing war at home.
Mr. Gwion said his leadership continues to engage Ghanaian authorities who have been bent on repatriating them to their motherland or having them integrated into the Ghanaian society with support from UNHCR and others.
‘Some of these promises have not been forthcoming but with our government now through Amb. Kemayah getting directly involved we are very hopeful of a better deal,’ he stated.
Foreign Minister Kemayah lauded the Liberian leadership for their peaceful engagement and maintaining that the Weah led government will do all in its power to amicably resolve the issue. He said President Weah remains very concerned about the ongoing situation in Ghana.
‘I was appointed as Foreign Minister by H.E. President Weah to serve him, the country and the Liberian People, and all of you our citizens here in this meeting and in the Buduburam Camp and Ghana are part of the Liberian People I am serving, it is your right, I am not doing any of you any favor, I am doing my job as your Foreign Minister and this is what the Liberian Tax Payers are paying me for,’ Minister Kemayah stated.
Since the war thousands of Liberians took up refuge in Ghana and have been there till date with little means of survival. Ghanaian authorities continue to make frantic efforts in getting Liberians off the camp which saw the intervention of Amb. Kemayah.
