Only In Ghana – Few Months After Criticising NDC For Admitting Gitmo 2 Into Ghana – NPP Parliament Approves Their Stay!

Ghanaian politics is this beautiful, dynamic thing where no one is really required to hold onto a position by principle, but simply based on whether they are in power or in opposition.

So we have this quite common occurrence where what a party cries against in opposition becomes what they do once in power, and vice versa.

Case in point – the so-called Gitmo 2.

The NDC accepted the two into the country clandestinely when they were in power, a move the NPP criticised to no end.

However, on Tuesday, the NPP had to step up and put their money where their mouth was, as the case of the ratification of their stay came up on the floor of Parliament.

Despite their threats to send them back when they come into power, though, the NPP majority parliament approved the stay of the Gitmo 2, on the recommendation of the foreign minister.

According to Shirley Ayorkoy Botchwey, the original agreement expires on January 6, 2018 – at which point government would have to make a decision on what to do with the duo.
