The Ghana First Patriotic Front, a group made up of opposition political parties, especially members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Saturday embarked on a demonstration in the Tamale Metropolis to protest against the Ghana-US Military Cooperation agreement.

According to the group, the Ghana-US Military Cooperation agreement threatens the sovereignty of Ghana as an independent country.

Clad in red and black apparels, the protestors marched through some principal streets in the metropolis to drum home their demand on President Nana Akufo-Addo to cancel the military deal.

Leading members of the group are scheduled to address the demonstrators at the Tamale Jubilee Park, where the protestors would converge after the march.

About three weeks ago, the group embarked on a similar demonstration in Accra.

Some of the leading members of the NDC who joined the march include Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the General Secretary of the NDC; the Minority Leader and MP for Tamale South, Mr. Haruna Iddrisu; the MP for North Tongu, Mr. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, and the Northern Regional Chairman of the NDC, Sofo Azoka.
