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

The broadcast is expected to be on all major networks at 8 pm.

There has been a public outrage since documents of a military agreement between Ghana and the US leaked about a fortnight ago.

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.
