Parliament reveals plans to shelve new chamber if Ghanaians protest

The leaders of the majority and minority sides in Parliament have disclosed the possibility of aborting plans to construct a new chamber.

The Speaker of the House, Professor Aaron Michael Ocquaye, has meanwhile stated that the project would not be tolerated if its cost exceeds $200 million.

YEN.com.gh understands that the renowned Ghanaian architect, David Frank Adjaye, designed the model and took members of the House through it on Friday, June 28, 2019.

He stated that the project would be completed in three years if it begins before the end of the year 2019.

Per a Starrfm.com.gh report, the new chamber will be a multi-purpose building with a chapel, mosque, eatery and a museum.

Some Members of Parliament (MPs) are not in agreement with their leaders with regard to the project.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has learnt that the staff at the Ashanti regional branch of the Metro Mass Transit (MMT) has declared a sit-down strike.

According to them, they are faced with human resource challenges as well as poor management techniques.

The angry workers revealed that a majority of the vehicles in the region have broken down, and nothing is being done to fix them.
