MPs MUST SAY NO TO U.S. MILITARY BASE IN GHANA!
Kwame Nkrumah tells us in Africa Must Unite (1963) that
“if we do not unite and combine our military resources for common defense, our individual [African] States, out of a sense of insecurity, may be drawn into making defense pacts with foreign powers which may endanger the security of us all”.
