Security analyst, Dr. Kwasi Aning, says Ghana's controversial military deal with US has exposed the country to terrorism.

The security analyst believes the way the whole deal was handled by government and the minority NDC could spark some tensions in the country which terrorists could capitalize on.

“This agreement has exposed the dangerous bipartisanship in our politics; so dangerous that the stability of this country does not matter in the calculus of those who play these games insofar as they will hurt their political opponents. That is dangerous, that threatens you and [me]," he revealed in an interview with Starr FM.

Forces may also import into and export out of, and use in Ghana any personal property equipment supplies material technology, training or services in connection with the agreement.

This controversial decision by the government to grant the US all these permits has been described by a senior Ghanaian academician and jurist, Dr. Akilagpa Sawyerr, as a serious national security issue.
