Addressing hundreds of demonstrators Saturday in Tamale, Mr Ntekia, popular called General Mosquito, said "citizens will defend Ghana no matter what it takes."

He also cautioned the president that no amount of armed-twisting or anger will dampen the people's interest

He said: “Ghana is for Ghanaians. The citizens of Ghana will continue defending the interest of Ghana, no matter what it takes; the people’s interest shall not be dampen by any arm-twisting parties or by the anger of any President. So we want Nana Addo to take the message from Tamale clear."

Demonstrators, clad in red, held placards with inscriptions: "No to US military base in Ghana," "This wasn't what you promised us King Promise," "Ghanaians deserve some respect Mr Akufo-Addo," "We want jobs not military base," "Our sovereignty is not for sale" among others.
