According to the ace journalist, most Ghanaians do not understand what the new chamber project is all about, a reason for their agitation.

In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline.com, Kweku Baako expressed his disappointment at Ghanaians who are asking for the chamber not to be built.

"In my view, of courses because of the public uproar, I see people putting this thing on hold but I am saying that one way of the other we must start with this project," he stated.

"We are not talking about the debating chamber alone. A lot of people are focused on the debating chamber which we have reconfigured and done so many things to," he noted.

"This particular Parliament House is not disability friendly, it is envisaged that this new complex will have all those facilities," he added.

He pointed out instances that Ghanaians agitated over the building of similar state edifice as he made mention of two.

He recalled that Ghanaians agitated when Ghana's first president Dr. Kwame Nkrumah decided to build 'Job 600' for MPs.

He also recalled that some citizens agitated when former president John Agyekum Kufuor decided to build the Jubilee House which is now the current seat of government.

He however lamented over the communication strategies used in revealing the plan of the construction to Ghanaians.

"I think communication has been a serious problem for how this matter was put into the public domain," he stressed.
