The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has revealed that it is coordinating the evacuation of 431 Ghanaians who are stuck in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates with UAE authorities.
According to a news release from the ministry, agents who offered the stranded Ghanaians jobs in Dubai and the UAE deceived them.
