- A former Central regional minister, Aquinas Tawaih Quansah, has observed the Ghana-US military agreement will only lead to the birth of what he described as “half-caste babies”
- He says Ghana will not only enjoy $20 million from the agreement but will also lose its women to the US soldiers in intimate and amorous relationships
Former Central Regional Minister, Aquinas Tawaih Quansah, believes Ghana does not stand to gain so much from the controversial military pact signed with the United States.
According to him, the only benefit the nation stands to gain is the US military sleeping with Ghanaian ladies to produce “half-caste” babies.
The controversial Ghana-US military agreement was last Friday ratified by Parliament despite protests from a large section of the public.
The agreement, which would see the US give Ghana $20million every year, gives the American military unfiltered access to military installations in Ghana.
The deal also grants the US tax waivers for any military equipment that they import to Ghana.
However, the former Minister insists in addition to the said amount, the US military would engage in relationships with Ghanaian ladies to produce babies of mixed races.
Speaking on Adom TV’s ‘Badwam’ show, Mr. Quansah said: “Those of us who have had the chance to be close to the military know a lot about our military. At the end of the day, what will the US military teach us.
“Maybe what we will gain is that in the next 10 to 15 years, we will have half-caste babies or black American babies and I think that is the only thing that Ghana stands to gain aside that huge money.”
He added that the right procedure was not used in ratifying the Ghana-US military agreement in Parliament.
He accused the Majority of using their numbers to impose the agreement on the House and Ghanaians in general.
“We [NDC] are against the agreement. That is our stance on this issue. Article 75 of our constitution states clearly how far Ghana can go in such agreements. The right procedure wasn’t used in this case. This government needs to be told,” he asserted.
Meanwhile, the opposition NDC joined hundreds of Ghanaians Wednesday to demonstrate on the streets of Accra against the military pact.
