I’ve already packed my things out of office – Speaker of Parliament

The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon Edward Doe Adjaho has asked the out-going MPs to vacate their offices in the job 600 before January 6, 2017 to facilitate the transitional arrangement to usher in the MP-elect for the Seventh Parliament of the Fourth Republic.

He said he as the Speaker has already packed all things from the office he is occupying waiting for January 6, 2017 to hand over peacefully to the Clerk of Parliament.

This, he believes will ensure the smooth takeover by the new Speaker of the Seventh Parliament.

MPs currently occupy their offices at the refurbished Job 600 complex.

The $63 million building was constructed to serve as venue for the 1965 meeting of the Organisation of the then OAU, now the African Union, but the re-engineering of the structure turned it into offices for MPs.

The Speaker made this observation in his welcome address to Members in the Chamber of the House, Tuesday, December 20, 2016.

The Speaker also urged the House to ensure the speedy passage of the RTI Bill looking at the enormous work the lawmakers did before going on recess.
