A Cabinet Minister has told manassehazure.com that there is no way the Akufo-Addo government will approve parliament’s proposal to build a new chamber to seat 450. The Minister says the issue has not been formally brought to the attention of the government, but he is sure cabinet will not approve such a deal.
The minister, who does not want to be named, said the funding of the project is said to be in three components of a loan. A grant and partly from the government of Ghana. Adding that the entire project is the initiative of the Parliamentary Service Board.
“The government is not involved, and it has not even been discussed in parliament or in the cabinet,” he said. “If parliament has 100% of grant or free money, and wants to use it for a new chamber, the government may have no control over that. But we don’t think we need the chamber now,” the minister said.
