“Ghana first”! This was the slogan, as Thousands of Ghanaians rallied in the streets of Accra on Wednesday to protest a deal that would give the United States military an expanded role in Ghana.

Struck last week when the Ghanaian parliament ratified the deal, the defence cooperation agreement (DCA) as it is known, would give the united states access to facilities including Ghana’s airport runways.
