Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed, has disclosed that authorities in Guinea are reluctant to receive eight of their citizens who tested positive for coronavirus in Ghana.
The eight Guineans have since been quarantined in Tamale and are receiving treatment.
“Our headache is that the Guinean authorities are saying they will not agree for us to return them,” the Minister said at a media briefing on Wednesday.
Ghana is also facing the same problem with Burkina Fas after two Burkinabes who tested positive remain in quarantine in Ghana as their home country threaten to return Ghanaians who are critically ill in their country and receiving treatment.
Addressing the media in Tamale, the Northern Region capital, Mr Saeed said the Foreign Affairs Ministry is treading cautiously on the matter to prevent a diplomatic row.
