Our president, H.E Nana Akufo-Addo is outraged after y’all claimed he has sold the sovereignty of Ghana for $20m in the purported the United States Military base deal.

Minutes ago, the president held an impassionate press conference where he expressed his disgust at his political opponents (whom we can safely assume to be the NDC, i.e Ex President Mahama, Asiedu Nketia etc) who should know better but decided to feign ignorance and throw dust into the eyes of Ghanaians.

“How outraged I am by the defamatory comments by my political opponents that the sovereignty of the country has been sold by us. I will not be the president that does that,” H.E Akufo-Addo said.

He described those politicians who took a jab at him and his government as self-seeking politicians.

“How can people who have been in government before feign ignorance in conditions under which our troops undertake peacekeeping operations,” the president said.

All these came after the president has made the case of how previous governments, including the recent one headed by Ex-President Mahama rather chose to secretly enter into a defence cooperation agreement with the United States.

The president didn’t get how the leaders of the NDC could feign ignorance and speak about the recent deal as something that has never happened before.

He said the government had no plans of secretly signing the deal with the US that was why the deal was sent to parliament in the first place, unlike the previous similar agreements signed by other governments.

“Some politicians enjoy the largesse of America yet they have no problem pushing anti-American sentiments when it suits their political ambitions,” H.E Nana Addo maintained.

See… the man really ves.

Before he ended his speech, the president stated categorically that Ghana has not granted the US permission to establish a military base here.

“Ghana has not offered a military base and will not offer a military base to the USA. The USA has not made such request, we will not consider any such request,” he said.

So, there you go.. allay’all can give the President some breathing space.
