The decision of parliament to build a new chamber came as a surprise. Ghanaians protested heavily against it with a #dropthatchamber hash tag which has been trending since last week.
This decision even brought about a misunderstanding between artist Samini and actor John Dumelo.
One Ernesto Yeboah, the convener of the Economic Fighters League along with two others was also arrested last week in relations to this same issue of the chamber.
Well, It looks like the chamber has finally been dropped by parliament.
The Ag. Director of Public Affairs of Parliament, Kate Addo,stated that the house has decided to put the construction of the chamber on hold for the time being, but she is unable to say if it is a permanent decision or if the issue will be revisited in the near future.
