Minority MPs Threaten To Impeach Mahama Over GITMO 2

Minority lawmakers in Ghana have threatened to initiate an impeachment process against President John Mahama over the transfer of the two ex-detainees of Guantanamo bay to Ghana.

The angry MPs have vowed to push for the president’s removal from office if he fails to make public the agreement between the government and the US leading to the transfer of two former detainees of Guantanamo Bay to Ghana.

Foreign affairs minister, Hannah Tetteh is due to brief parliament on Friday on the matter.

The minister will, however, be making her presentation in a closed sitting.

But the minority MPs are kicking against the closed sitting alleging that government intends hiding the real facts from the public.

They also want a ratification to the agreement.
Attah Akyea, spokesperson for the aggrieved minority MPs told Starr FM that Ghanaians must know whether their security has not been bargained off.

“If it is legitimate agreement, you would not ratify an agreement in secrecy, that agreement should be in the public domain so that everybody will understand that we have not bargained off our security”.
