The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) will on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, embark on a nationwide demonstration against the controversial Defence Cooperation Agreement between Ghana and the US.

Parliament on Friday ratified the agreement with the US to man some installations in Ghana and also allow unrestricted access to a host of facilities and wide-ranging tax exemptions to the United States Military.

NUGS is against the pact which will earn Ghana $20 million in training and equipment supply.

“The agreement is an errant insult on the sovereignty and independence of the Republic of Ghana. The agreement has the tendency of polarising the state and must be resisted by all Ghanaians with all our might in defending and upholding in high esteem the sovereignty of Ghana,” NUGS said in a statement.

The student body wants the Council of State to as a matter of urgency withdraw the agreement for reassessment and renegotiation.
“The Union also by this statement calls on the following institutions to state their position on this important issue and possibly join us in our call to protect our motherland.

“The National House of Chiefs, The Christian Council, The National Peace Council, All Political Parties, TUC and All other CSOs… We challenge the youth and all well-meaning Ghanaians to stand up to the call and defend our country,” the statement added.

NUGS has declared today Monday, March 26, 2018, as a “Red Week Protest” where they are encouraging all students across the country to wear red when attending lectures.

It will also join Wednesday’s demonstration under the aegis of the Ghana First Patriots.
