Doe Adjaho Rescinds Decision To Stay Off Job 600 Issues

Director of Public Affairs in Parliament, Jones Kugblenu has told Citi News that the Speaker of Parliament has rescinded his decision on not getting involved in the issues relating to the completion of the Job 600 project.

Rt. Honourable Edward Doe Adjaho on Wednesday expressed his frustration over the undue delays in the completion of the Job 600 project which is to serve as the office complex for Parliamentarians.

Construction of the project was started in the 1990’s but rehabilitation works on the building commenced in April 2010 to provide 252 office accommodations for the Members of Parliament (MPs).

In addition to the provision of offices for the MPs and their ancillary staff, the building will have a library, research centre, auditorium, as well as meeting rooms for the various committees of Parliament.

The project is however yet to be completed due to factors including lack of funds and the failure of the contractors working on the project to meet the set deadline of May 2013.

Mr. Kugblenu in an interview on the Citi Breakfast Show on Thursday explained that the Speaker of Parliament’s outburst in Parliament on Wednesday was because “when he became Speaker of Parliament, he took certain steps to ensure that there is value for money in every aspect of the project and so he thought that this should have been the last lap of the negotiations until a few issues cropped up.”

According to him, Mr. Doe Adjaho has considered the “feeling of the House. I think that he has rescinded that decision and has given the go ahead for the committee to look at the new emerging issues.”
