UNMEER team arrives in Ghana
The Chief of Staff, Prosper Douglas Bani, has led a government team to meet with the United Nations Mission on Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER) on the establishment of their Mission and the setting up of a logistics centre in Accra.
Ms Safia Boly, who led the UN delegation to the meeting at the Flagstaff House, said about two hundred and fifty (250) UN personnel will be deployed, out of which one hundred (100) will be operating from Ghana.
As headquarters of the UNMEER, Accra will among other things also host a Centre for the training of personnel. The two teams discussed recruitment of additional personnel from Ghana, issues related to customs and aviation clearance, the issuance of radio frequencies, security, health and safety of personnel among others.
The Mission's mode of transporting logistics will be by air, sea and road. Already some logistics including vehicles have arrived in Ghana.
Ms. Boly said this is perhaps the shortest period between a UN Security Council decision, adopted in New York last week, and the start of actual implementation. The team thanked the President and the people of Ghana for the offer to host the headquarters of the United Nations Mission on Ebola Emergency Response.
Mr. Bani assured the UN team of President Mahama's personal and the government's commitment to ensure fruitful UNMEER operations from Ghana.
The newly appointed Special Representative of the Secretary General on Ebola is expected in Accra next Monday, September 29, 2014.
