Nana Adjei Ampofo argues that the agreement will jeopardise Ghana's security interest, adding that it is an affront "to our dignity."
The court challenge to the agreement, he says, will be filed at the Supreme Court hopefully on Wednesday March 28.
"Everything is ready and by next week Wednesday, the writ would be filed at the Supreme Court," Ampofo told Graphic Online.
"It [agreement] will jeopardise our security and it is an affront to the dignity of Ghana as a whole," he added.
The agreement gives “unimpeded” access to the US to deploy troops and military equipment in Ghana.
It gives tax exception to US military contractors and requires Ghana to provide the US with runway for US military operation.
"United States forces shall be responsible for the operation and maintenance, construction, and development costs of agreed facilities and areas provided for the exclusive use of United State: forces unless otherwise agreed," it said.
In return, the US will invest $20 million in the Ghana army and police service as well as host joint-military exercises together.
Parliament on Friday voted to host United States troops.
The vote was boycotted by the opposition National Democratic Congress because it was not "in our national interest."
