Grand Gedeh Lawmaker Appeals To Ghana On behalf of  Liberian Refugees 

Capitol Hill: The Chairperson on the House Standing Committee on  Refugees Repatriation
Rehabilitation and Resettlement  has appealed to the Ghanaian Government for a year's extension  for the Repatriation of the remaining  Liberian Refugees residing in that country.

Hon. Marie Johnson of Electoral District 2, Grand Gedeh County said her appeal to the government of Ghana is predicated on the  challenges face by LRRRC and its  partners to resettle  and reintegrate those recently returned in the country. 

Rep. Johnson averred that her appeal comes from the backdrop of Liberia been in a transitional position to promptly address the situation.

She made these assertions Thursday, 20 June 2024 when she served as Key note speaker at a program commemorating World Refugee Day at the Monrovia City Hall. 

Speaking on the theme “ Solidarity With Refugee -for A World where Refugees are Welcome”, the astute lawmaker   wants  more to be done in offering hope and opportunities to the returnees who are temporarily residing in CARRI Bong County. 

She commended the LRRRC, Relief organizations and stakeholders for containing the situation in their  meager means since the repatriation of the returnees.
