“Due to a number factors including the fact that over 7.5 million citizens and residents are yet to obtain Ghana cards to enable them to register their SIM cards, it is clear that the deadline for the completion of the registration of the remaining active SIM cards cannot be met,” the statement from the ministry said.

The first batch of Ghanaians students in Ukraine is now in safe hands in Romania.

In line with an arrangement between the government of Ghana and Romania, the latter will cater for the evacuated students while more efforts are made to rescue the remaining ones from harm’s way. The safe evacuation of the students was confirmed by the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) on its Twitter page on Saturday, February 26.

Reports say the students who were in Chernivtsi have evacuated as part of arrangements made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration via Ghana’s Mission in Berne, Switzerland.

According to the ministry, airlifting the stranded Ghanaians has been difficult due to a shutdown of Ukrainian airspace. It, therefore, thought it prudent to carry out the evacuation by land through neighbouring Moldova, Belarus, Slovakia and Hungary.
