Ghana|-US Defence Has Be Retifies By Parliament Agreement

SHARE:

Parliament on Friday ratified an agreement between the governments of Ghana and the United States of America (USA) on defence cooperation, the status of the US forces, access to and use of agreed facilities and areas in Ghana.
However, moments before the agreement was ratified, the Minority group walked out of the chamber.

 of the agreement is to set forth a framework for enhanced partnership and security cooperation between the USA and Ghana with the aim of strengthening their defence relationship further.
It is also to address their shared security challenges in the region,while clouding those related to the protection of government personnel and facilities.
The ratification followed the adoption of the report of the joint Committee on Defence and Interior and the Committee on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, which had recommended, by a majority decision, the ratification of the agreement.
Disagreements
Since the defence cooperation became public, it had generated disagreements between the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government and the main opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The NDC members said the agreement, which offered unimpeded access and use of facilities to US forces, undermined the sovereignty of Ghana and would expose the country to danger.
The General Secretary of the NDC, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, stated that they would review the agreement when the NDC returned to power.
But the government led by the Minister of Defence, Mr Dominic Nituwul, indicated that the agreement would deepen defence cooperation between Ghana and the US.
