US military deal: NDC MPs betrayed Ghanaians – Pratt

The Managing News Editor of the Insight Newspaper Kwesi Pratt Jnr has accused minority MPs of betraying the country by failing to challenge the Defense Minister at the committee meeting that approved the controversial US-Ghana military deal.



“When this agreement was finally ratified, I was in Parliament House and to my embarrassment, Dominic Nitiwul, the Defense Minister wrote the list of persons who attended the meeting of the committee which finally approved this agreement…majority of the persons were from the NDC.”

Mr. Pratt added that the failure of the NDC members on that committee to use their numbers to reject the agreement and publicly criticise it, is a complete betrayal.

Mr. Pratt was speaking at a public forum organized by the Ghana First Patriotic Front as part of activities to intensify pressure on government to withdraw the Ghana-US Military Cooperation Agreement.

Meanwhile, International Relations expert Dr. Ken Ahorsu has warned of sour relations between Ghana and its neighbors in the West African sub-region if government proceeds with signing of US-military deal.

The Senior Research Fellow at the Legon Centre for International Affairs and Diplomacy said the deal will conflict with existing security arrangements between the country and its sub regional counterparts to have joint standby military forces.
