Covid-19: Parliament to relocate temporarily to Conference centre
The Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye, has said the House is likely to relocate to the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) in the coming days.
The leadership of the House is currently engaging the relevant authorities for the temporal relocation to enable lawmakers have enough space to practice the Social distancing measures.
The Speaker, on Monday said:“As the Majority Leader suggested the other day, we are in the process of making all relevant arrangements if we can relocate temporarily to the conference centre…and carry on. Maybe this would make people realise that Parliament is in need of a more spacious place.”
