Togo’s safety is paramount – Ayorkor Botchway

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, has said the government of Ghana is holding talks with Togolese officials following the political unrest in that country.


26 Togolese nationals were arrested in Ghana last Saturday after they attempted to stage a mass protest in Accra, to draw attention to the political crisis in Togo.

They were expected to be arraigned before court yesterday.

Speaking to Citi News, Ayorkor Botchway said the Ghanaian government was frantically engaging Togolese authorities to find a lasting solution to the heightened political situation in that country.

“Consultations are going on. We are talking [with them] because it is important. We are a stakeholder. Anything that happens in Togo has an effect on us. Anything that happens in Ghana will have an effect on Togo.”

She noted that “it is in our interest to make sure Togo is safe and Ghana is safe, and there is nothing negative going on in any of the two countries.”
