Today the Foreign Affairs Minister, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey appeared before Parliament to answer questions from a MP regarding costs involved in bringing some Ghanaians back from some Gulf States. Apparently, these Ghanaians have had their human rights abused while in those countries. After the minister finished with her responses, supplementary questions were posed by other MPs.
The lawmaker for Korle Klottey rose to her feet. The mother of 3 is known to be the quiet type but this time chose to have her question addressed. “I will like to enquire from her if her ministry has ascertained the routes by which these persons left Ghana and went to those countries and whether there have been any legal proceedings put in place to seek justice for those whose human rights were abused in those states” Zanetor Rawlings queried.
The question caused the Speaker, Alban Bagbin to lower his head and smile before later referring back to the question. “It doesn’t actually arise from the main question but as a minister if she has that information she could share. You are talking about illegal routes while the question is not talking about that but costs of evacuation” Alban Bagbin responded with a large smile.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs in response said she will be happy to research and bring an answer if the MP for Korle Klottey will file a question regarding the routes used by these Ghanaians on their way to the Gulf States. She added that it will be difficult to say the routes because the routes are illegal and not clear. Alban Bagbin then urged on Zanetor to file a question if she wanted more information
