They are of the view that this particular deal is in a way collateralize and protect the resources to be locked into one side that favors only the ruling party.
It has stated through its leader, Mr. Haruna Iddrisu that it will not agree to the New Patriotic Party government's plans for the second time on the minerals and natural resources that according to them seems to have some shady deals to 'sell the country's resources to foreigners and among themselves' going forward.
They are of the view that the plans the NPP has tabulated when it comes to this particular deal, is obscure, unpatriotic, and unGhanaian. And so, they would not sit by the table to jaw-jaw with them in unison to privatize the minerals sector in the country.
The Tamale Central MP is of the view that just as the name sounds, it is the direct opposite of it; it is a bad father's legacy to be left for the now and the unborn generations (Agya bone, not Agyapa as suggested).
This Agyapa deal was earlier presented to Parliament. But, was opposed by not just the NDC minority, but rather Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) joined them in preventing it from being passed because certain portions of the bill in their view seemed gloomy and a way to tie the hands of Ghanaians at their back whiles they watch their resources shared amongst a few people among the ruling class.
As such, it was rejected and made to go through another scrutiny to fix the wrongs before resubmitting it to Parliament.
