Akufo-Addo donates ‘huge sum’ of GH¢3,500 to over 200 stranded Ghanaians to share



President Nana Akufo-Addo has donated Three Thousand Five Hundred Ghana cedis (GH¢3,500) to over 200 stranded Ghanaian drivers at the Nigeria-Benin border.


The meager cash donation was made by Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr Carlos Ahenkorah on behalf of President Akufo-Addo.


According to Carlos Ahenkorah, the president asked him to give the money to the drivers to help ease their financial burden as the border was closed.

Mr Ahenkorah and the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Mr Charles Owiredu, met with the stranded Ghanaian truck drivers at the Seme-Krake border.


The meeting afforded the deputy ministers and the delegation comprising representatives from the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA) and CEPS, to collate information about the particulars of the affected drivers, companies and items onboard their trucks.

Addressing the drivers, Mr Owiredu described the closure as unfortunate and commended the drivers for their fortitude in the midst of the challenges.


He explained that the visit was aimed at verifying data about the traders affected by the closure of the Seme-Krake border.
