The MP made the payment into a special Prudential Bank account set up solely for all MPs to send their contributions to.

"I think this is a special project that requires special attention. I believe that MPs and the government must adopt the right strategies. We must do something out of the ordinary," he said.

He subsequently appealed to colleague MPs on the floor of the House to at least donate GHC1,000 towards this important project.
