Irene Callixta Songotu, who spoke on behalf of the parents added that they couldn’t believe that such an insensitive statement came from a senior member of parliament and a Health Minister of the country for that matter. “Access to basic necessities of life has become impossible yet the Minister of Health, a parent as well, is saying that all is well with our children. Some parents who spoke to GhanaWeb pleaded with President Akufo-Addo to rescue Ghanaian citizens by evacuating all those locked-up in Wuhan China. “We are asking the government to bring them (Ghanaian students) home, they are citizens of Ghana… they can hardly get food to eat, what he lives on is Lipton tea. All that we need is to get him back home safely,” says one of the traumatized parents, Mr. Joseph Ledlum.
