- Hassan Ayariga says the American soldiers entering the country will serve Ghana no good
- The APC founder is willing to pay the government 20 million dollars if that is what it takes to stop the deal
- The minority in parliament has also cried against the development saying it is dangerous
Founder of the All People's Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga, is warning against the coming onboard of US soldiers to Ghana following the military cooperation deal by the government with the US.
Sharing his thoughts on the deal, Hassan Ayariga claimed that American soldiers are "gays who marry themselves."
According to the 2012 presidential candidate, Ghanaians are at risk of seeing these military officials "marry your fathers, mothers and even yourselves."
According to the outspoken politician, he does not see the reason behind government entering into such a deal at a cost of 20 million dollars.
“Once again the Danquah Busia tradition have sold our sovereignty for the chicken change of 20 million dollars. What is 20 million dollars? They should come I will give them. I’m serious. If that’s what will prevent them from signing, I will give them,” he said.
In fact, the majority National Democratic Congress (NDC), has revealed plans for suspending this deal should they win the 2020 elections.
In an interview with Joy News, the US ambassador says the 20 million dollar deal with Ghana is enough to let Ghanaians know how committed the US is to boosting Ghana's army.
"I think Ghanaians never treated us fairly. I am very disappointed at the reaction we are getting. Maybe there should be more public knowledge because this deal was signed back in 1998," Robert P. Jackson revealed.
So far, the government has insisted that there is no going back on the military deal with the United States.
The defense minister says the agreement was signed way back in 1998 and that they are just renewing it.
There are fears that the deal between Ghana and the US to "establish a military base in the country" could spell doom for Ghana's security.
Security expert, Dr. Vladmir Antwi Danso, is warning that the decision by Ghana to host US troops could expose the country to terrorist attacks.
So far, America remains the major country in the world very exposed to terrorist groups like ISIS.
It is for this reason that almost all countries that openly declare their allegiance to America expose themselves to terrorist attacks from the enemy of America.
