- A group of demonstrators have been barred from entering the house of Parliament
- Their aim was to ensure that Parliament does not pass a military deal with USA into law
- According to them, they would go to every length to ensure that they achieve their objective
A group of people referred to as the Economic Fighters League (EFL), have besieged the gates of the house of Parliament.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, their core objective is to make sure that Parliament does not debate on, and subsequently pass a military proposal between Ghana and the United States of America (USA).
The EFL, YEN.com.gh understands, asked to be allowed entry into Parliament, so they could bring to a stop, the passage of the agreement that “will sell Ghana’s independence and sovereignty to a colonial super power.”
The gates of the lawmaking House have therefore been locked to prevent them from gaining access to the House.
The leader of the group, Ernesto Kofi Yeboah, vowed to ensure that the agreement does not see the light of day, regardless of the lengths they will have to go.
In his opinion, the agreement is a “re-colonization” agreement and will be resisted in every possible way.
He went ahead to say that the fact that USA’s military personnel would have unrestricted access to Ghana, under the guise of securing a base for staging and deploying forces, should be an issue of concern.
Ernesto Yeboah went on to say that aside the unrestricted access and tax exemptions, Ghana has also agreed to bear the cost and take primary responsibility for securing the U.S. facilities in Ghana.
