About 1,500 Ghanaians in Libya are expected to arrive in the country on Tuesday March 8, via special aircrafts.
Government says it is expecting three chartered flights at the Kotoka International Airport, each carrying 500 evacuees.
The evacuees are being flown from Libyan capital Tripoli, after government secured landing rights from that city.
A Deputy Minister of Information Baba Jamal told Citi News access to Ghanaians in Tripoli has now become easier.
He says more Ghanaians will be repatriated as soon as they are possessed.
‘We’re sure to have a very big flight today carrying people from Tripoli. We’ve secured the landing right and if all things work well, we hope that we would be able to airlift people from Tripoli to reduce the congestion there”.
“The flight that we’re talking about, we’re expecting that at a go. Over five hundred people will come on one flight and it’s going to be two or three flights, flying from Tripoli so we’re sure that within some few days we would be able to complete the evacuation in Tripoli” he noted.
Since the evacuation exercise began on February 26, close to one thousand Ghanaians have arrived home
