#DropThatChamber: Ghanaians Fight Against Government’s Decision To Construct A New $200M Parliament House


Ghanaians on social media are fighting against the government’s plan to construct a new parliament house.

The plan of the government to build a new parliament house according to citinewsroom was disclosed when Members of the Parliamentary Service Board received a model for the proposed new chamber on Friday.

Apparently, some allocation has been made towards the project by the government but additional funding is being sourced to make the project a reality.

Renowned British-Ghanaian architect, David Adjaye, who also designed the National Cathedral is the one in charge of the proposed new parliament too.

Well, a lot of Ghanaians don’t seem to be happy about the government’s decision to build a new chamber for parliamentarians.

The hashtag (#DropThatChamber) which is trending on Twitter is a campaign against the construction of the new parliament house.

Some Ghanaians think the construction of a new parliament house is just a misplaced priority on the part of the government taking into consideration the issues that the country is facing with regards to poor roads and the high level of unemployment.

Lol… Some people even suggested that parliament should also run a double track system just like the Senior High Schools if the current chamber is not big enough to occupy the number of parliamentarians.

The fight against the construction of a new parliament is not just going to be fought on social media. A demonstration is set to happen on 13th July.

What y’all think? New Parliament house or nah?
