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).
Addressing the news conference, the Executive Director of the GRB, Dr Kofi Anani, said the Board has also helped repatriate over 40,000 Liberian refugees but 3,500 opted not to go back to Liberia when the voluntary repatriation programme started hence the naturalisation.
Dr Anani said there were currently 21,331 refugees in Ghana from 26 countries.
