The stakeholders are Parliament, Ghana Immigration Service and the Ghana Police Service.

Some citizens of Liberia fled their home during the first Liberian Civil War (1989-2003) to Ghana. After some time, just when the citizens were forgetting the first war, the Second Liberian Civil War also started(1999–2003).

Dr Anani said there were currently 21,331 refugees in Ghana from 26 countries.
