Member of the NPP Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has asked Parliament to come clear on their intended construction of the new controversial 450-seater parliament chamber.

Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko’s request follows the fierce public criticism that has greeted the project.

He wants the parliamentary leadership to make their intention known today Monday, July 8.

“We must know whether or not they are shelving this chamber thing. It is being used to mobilise too many otherwise loyal or neutral people against the Govt. Not on!” Gabby wrote on Facebook.
