Govt not sponsoring all delegates to COP27 – Lands Minister

Lands Minister, Samuel Abu Jinapor, has refuted claims that the Ghanaian government is sponsoring all the members of its delegation attending the COP27 in Egypt.

.

According to him, most of Ghana’s delegates to the conference are being sponsored by their respective non-governmental organisations and thus are not a financial burden on the nation’s coffers.

JoyNews’ correspondent at the COP27, Mahmud Mohammed-Nurudeen, revealed that members of Ghana’s delegation to COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt number about 155.

.

Speaking to JoyNews on the circumstance surrounding the number of delegates, Samuel Jinapor explained that many of Ghana’s delegates are members of NGOs operating both in Ghana and abroad who had received accreditation from the Ministry of Environment to attend the conference.
