About 20 Ghanaian medical students are reported to be stranded in Cuba for the non-payment of their allowances for the past eight months.
The situation, according to the students, has made life unbearable for them as they have resorted to borrowing from their colleagues from other countries.
Some of the students who spoke to Citi News say they are likely to miss out on the deadline for their medical examinations in Ghana if government does not come to their aid.
Speaking on Eyewitness News, the Ambassador, John Tia Akologo who conceded that government has not paid the allowances for the past eight months however indicated that the embassy is ready to assist students who want to return to Ghana.
“We have told them those who are willing could go home now, and then when the allowances are made, we will make arrangements and send the monies to them,” he added.
