GHANA, WEST AFRICA-The Head of the Government of Liberia High-Power Delegation to Ghana has urged stranded Liberians in Buduburam Camp to return home and contribute to the rebuilding process of their country.

Speaking at a program marking the repatriation of over four thousand Liberians in Ghana on Sunday, May 20, 2024, the Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister for Legal Affairs, Cllr. Jeddi Armah reminded the Liberian migrants that returning home will change their current status and they will live in dignity.

Cllr. Armah added that living perpetually as a refugee impedes the pace of individual growth and development and deprives one of equal opportunities in a competitive space.

He noted that Camp was established as part of an intervention to save the lives of Liberians who fled the civil wars, as such, there is a need to return home as the country is currently enjoying uninterrupted peace.

The Deputy Foreign Minister thanked the Ghanaian Government and people, as well as partners, including the UNHCR, the   Ghanaian Refugee Board, and the Chiefs of the Gomoa Fetteh Region for their hospitality.

Meanwhile, the Deputy Executive Director for Operations of the Liberia Refugees Repatriation and Resettlement Commission (LRRRC), Richard Hoff, lauded the stranded Liberians for accepting to return home.

Mr. Hoff said:” The Liberia Government is fully prepared to repatriate them, as buses have been chartered and the CARI Regional Transit Village has been renovated for their wellbeing.”

He told the stranded Liberians that One UN has agreed to carry out a rapid assessment of what their livelihood will entail, and one hundred communities have also been identified for their stay before reintegration.

In remarks, the President of the Liberian Association in Buduburam Camp, Dennis Gwion, thank President Joseph Boakai for the initiative to repatriate Liberians.

Mr. Gwion urged the Liberian Community to take advantage of the opportunity to return home to live in peace and contribute their expertise to the growth and development of Liberia.
