International relations expert Prof. Agyenim Boateng has posited that it would be challenging for the government to mobilize and evacuate Ghanaians in Ukraine.
He noted that it is far superior for the government of Ghana to evacuate our nationals through other countries.
For now, airlifting Ghanaians in Ukraine he added would be difficult hence other options must be applied.
