We're not demonstrating against Ghana-US military deal - NUGS dispels reports

The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) has dispelled media reports that it is planning to hold a nationwide demonstration on Wednesday, 28 March 2018 to protest the approval of the controversial Defence Corporation Agreement between Ghana and the United States of America.

"We condemn in all certainty and call on the Security Agencies to arrest any group of person who would use the name of NUGS to achieve the parochial and egoistic interest," NUGS in the statement.
