The announcement of Parliament’s intention to construct a new chamber did not please Ghanaians with many taken to social media to pour out their concerns regarding this issue using #DropThatChamber. Ghanaians are very much displeased with the construction of a new chamber which costs a whooping $200m which is seen as a misplaced priority.
Videos circulating on social media of a man arrested in parliament today for protesting against Parliaments decision to construct the $200m chamber. The man who goes by the name Ernesto Yeboah was arrested and dragged out from the premises of parliament house.
The man can be clearly heard from the video stating his intentions of speaking truth to power.
