An Army officer has found himself in trouble after a video of him airing his views on the construction of a new parliamentary chamber went viral.
It has been alleged that the Ghana Armed Forces Command has allegedly locked up one of their officers who criticized parliamentarians over their decision to construct a new chamber.
According a report sighted on Myjoyonline.com, the army officer may have been locked due to his open opinion on the trending saga.
In a video that was sighted on the YouTube page of MyJoyOnline TV, the army officer was seen slamming the members of parliament.
"Are parliamentarians telling us that they don't have any use for the 200,000 dollars they want to use to build a parliament house?" the army officer quizzed.
"Is that what they are telling us? If that's what they are telling us then let me suggest something to them," he added.
The army office whose name is not known now stated that they money can be used to help dilapidated school buildings.
"They are school buildings that do not have chairs in them, there are still schools under trees, there are still villages without clinic, those without potable water," he advised.
"They should start thinking. Your excellency Nana Addo, I know you won't support this and I don't expect you to support this," he stated.
His rant followed a recent brouhaha that ensued concerning the announcement by parliamentarian to build a new parliamentary chamber.
The move however have been criticized by some large number of Ghanaians as they revealed that they will go on a mass demonstration coming July 13, 2019.
