President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo will tonight address Ghanaians on the controversial military agreement government signed with the United States of America.

The deal, which has since been ratified by parliament caused the opposition NDC and some civil society organisations to stage a huge demonstration in Accra last week.

His public address is expected to bring to rest the raging controversies over the deal that has seen pro-opposition elements demonstrate about whether or not it is worth it for the country to accept the deal that has already been passed by parliament.
