Sarkodie has slammed the Ghanaian government over its plan to build a new parliament, which will cost about $200m. The new Parliamentary complex is expected to have a 450 sitting capacity, house facilities including diplomatic offices, a library, a museum, a church, a mosque, eateries, press conference rooms, galleries, a car park, an upper gallery garden, and a post office.
The present chamber will be converted into a conference room, as confirmed by the architect, Sir David Adjaye.
Sarkodie who however reacted to this described it as a misplaced priority as Ghanaians are facing lots of challenges including bad roads. He also lamented that both NDC and NPP governments have failed the Ghanaian citizens.
“Politics and politicians will always be the same till the people change and become one putting this whole NDC NPP on the side and tackle issues together …If All these potholes on the motorway and other roads in Ghana causing accidents can be overlooked to raise 200mil for a chamber then yall know the kinda people we choose to be in power. Every project should target the betterment of the people first,” he wrote.
