Not so long ago, social media was boiling hot with news that the legislature of Ghana were on course to build a new parliamentary chamber which was estimated to have cost the nation a whooping $200 million.
This stirred the anger of people both on social media and traditional media and they had no choice than to drop it.
Days after the chamber was dropped, celebrity TV host Efia odo has questioned the parliament of Ghana if they will feel comfortable if their kids were studying under trees and depleted buildings.
She used pictures of some conditions some students have to go through just to study.
She encourage them to use the $200 million to improve the lives of schools that do not have the facilities to improve learning.
#DearGhanaParliament, is this good enough for our students? Don’t they deserve better? Would you feel comfortable knowing your kids are learning in these conditions? Imagine what we could do for children across Ghana with $200 million. Since the chamber has been suspended can we direct the finances towards building more schools and hospitals. The lack of hospital staff and the high rate of unemployment is too much! #its2019#butwehaventgottenanywhere#pleaseourpeoplearedying#wecantdothisalone#kumasi#offinso#gambag she wrote
