Though the President’s address was hard, it was important and timely to hear him and the American Ambassador (earlier) affirm that there would be no military base established in Ghana,” Mr. Rawlings commented in a twitter post.

The former military leader of Ghana added, “That was my major concern in my initial reaction to news of the agreement. The spirit of cooperation, be it military or diplomatic has always been there.

If there are details of the agreement that warrant a second look, such details should be examined to create comfort for all sides " he posted on his timeline.

Moreover, many people have also described the president’s speech as very harsh and full of grammar but very empty without any substance. They say the president did not really address the issue at hand but used the opportunity to clap back at his opposition.
