The Ghana-US Military deal has been a subject of heated controversy after it became public knowledge.

This led to a demonstration by the Ghana First Patriotic Front which was fully supported by the opposition NDC.

The US Ambassador and the government of Ghana have stated repeatedly that the agreement doesn’t grant the US the power to build a base, but many hold the agreement to be a sellout of Ghana’s sovereignty for 20 million dollars, an amount Hassan Ayariga, founder and leader of the All People’s Congress APC has vowed to pay to government to cancel the agreement with the US.
