The Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye has stressed on the need to keep members of parliament safe.

It is in light of this that he brought back the controversial topic concerning the expanding of the chamber that caused a major rift among Ghanaians who protested against the cause

. He made comments justifying the need for a new expanded chamber, he said ;

“This will also be showing a good example to our country men and women on the importance of social distancing because of our stature as members of this country.

“Maybe, this thing will make people realise that Parliament is really in need of a more spacious place to do the business that we are mandated to do.

“So in future, all these will be considered appropriately,” he said.

This obviously is bound to stir mixed emotions between Ghanaians
