Madam Speaker, there is something of public importance, national interest and I would need Madam Speaker's direction.
Madam Speaker, we have read in the Papers and we have heard on the radio stations, that as of now, there are about 3,500 Ghanaians who are refugees in Togo. Madam Speaker, there are conflicting reports on this issue, even as to the number of Ghanaians who are refugees in Togo now. There are also conflicting reports whether they are communal conflict refugees, political refugees or economic refugees.
Madam Speaker, it is, therefore, important, and I seek your direction, that the Hon Minister for the Interior should be invited to this House to address the House for Ghanaians to know the actual facts regarding this situation and the steps which the Government is taking in this direction and provide us, as the representatives of the people, a forum to make an input to assist the Government.
Madam Speaker, I would need your direction and my invitation is that you equally extend an invitation to the Hon Minister for the Interior to address this House tomorrow because of the urgency.
Thank you, Madam Speaker.
