The Supreme Court has in a unanimous decision upheld as legal, Ghana’s military cooperation agreement with the United States of America.
In the year 2018, Brogya Genfi, the Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), sued the government over its defense cooperation agreement with the United States.
Ms. Gloria Akuffo, the Attorney General and Minister of Justice and Dominic Nitiwul are the defendants in the suit.
The suit came days after Parliament ratified the pact despite stiff opposition from the Minority. The Minority staged a walkout during the debate in Parliament and the Majority approved the pact.
The seven-member panel presided over by Chief Justice Kwesi Anin Yeboah described the case as unmeritorious. He indicated that the reason for the court’s decision will be in the full judgment to be made available shortly.
