Ghana Disputes Asylum Bid by Football Fans in Brazil



Ghana Football Fans in Brazil - July 2014 -
A few hours ago, BN told you that Ghanaian football fans who visited Brazil to experience the 2014 World Cup are requesting asylum over inter-religious conflicts.

The Ghanaian government has denied religious violence claims.

“The basis for this alleged request is completely false as no religious conflicts is taking place in Ghana. Ghana’s mission in Brazil has been instructed to liaise with the Brazilian authorities to investigate the matter” said Minister Felix Kwakye Ofosu via a statement.

The group believed to be part of a government sponsored delegation, filed their applications in Caxias do Sul, one of Brazil’s most prosperous areas.

Police in Brazil believe the Ghanaians are looking for the right to work legally in the country.

    From what I’ve heard, brazil isn’t so welcoming to blacks as they’ll probably find out. And there is no religious crisis. Economic problems yes but no religious conflicts.

      is not like Brazil don’t welcome blacks because over half of Brazil population is black. the problem is that Brazil economy growth and standard of living is not so different from that Ghana and the will find out ones the spend some few months there.

    But Bella Nailja!? your reporting is quite shoddy at times and seems that you report on hear say.

    Where do you get your journalists from, don’t they know how to investigate stories and finds facts before posting your stories and who is the editor that approves such?

    I am not residing in Ghana but I know that currently there is inter-religious conflicts there.
    Come On – start reporting responsibly

    I am a Ghanaian and proudly one too. Wen you come to Ghana Christians and Moslems live in harmony in the Zongo”s Currently there are no religious fights here never it will never happen because i know where im coming from.I have so many moslems frds that i am cool with and a lot of people can attest to that
    The problem we are having right now is economic problem .
    Those people there in Brazil are not patriotic people they only think about their stomach
    Brazillians are even suffering more than Ghana

    Brazil has a very depressed economy and a lot more poor people than Ghana can dream of.
    Why on earth will anybody want to emigrate or get asylum in Brazil.
    Anyway, the lesson’s will be natural. they will find out why most of Brazil has been rioting for decades

    The BBC is not always a credible source of information especially on matters Africa I would rather quote Aljazeera on African matters. The Beeb still has a colonial mindset and is biased very much biased nothing good comes out of Africa according to them.

    BBC is not credible. Listen to Al Jazeera Africa. Do not trust anything that comes out of the west about Africa. Old and Bad habits never die. The west has been basking in the expense of Africa for for years. Thank you to China and the BRICS African is not rising. Too bad for the albinos.
