Member of Parliament for Asawase and the Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak Mohamed, has said it was wrong for the former Foreign Affairs Minister Hanna Tetteh to sign a deal with the United State of America having a military base.

According to the Minority Whip it was wrong that the deal was not brought to Parliament and signed by the former Foreign Affairs Minister without letting some senior officials of the previous government know.
He however pointed out that the issue had been resolved with the former Minister coming out to clear the air that she signed an agreement to have a US base in Ghana.

The Minority in the first meeting kicked against the agreement when it came to the floor of the House, but the Minister for defense was quick to point out that the former Foreign Affairs Minister signed to the agreement whiles in government and was not brought to the peoples representatives.

Mr. Mubarak Muntaka said he would oppose the sighting of a US base in Ghana thousand times when brought to the floor of the House any day any time.

I believe the US congress would not have accepted a resolution if there was anything like a Military base on their soil, they would want to debate it, I would continue to reject any cooked resolution without subjecting it to a debate, he remarked.
