President Mahama to commission Job 600 on Friday

Accra, Nov 05, GNA – President John Dramani Mahama is scheduled to inaugurate the Job 600 office building complex, in Accra, on Friday morning.

Mr Joe Ghartey, Second Deputy Speaker and MP for Esikado Ketan announced the opening of the refurbished massive structure, at the end of Thursday’s deliberations in the House.

He said Members of Parliament would then move into the building either during the week-end, or next week.

In a follow up contribution, Alhaji Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak, Majority Chief Whip, said the frontage of the building from the Speakers Block to the new Parliament Office Building would be cleared.

The Majority Chief Whip asked MPs who would be attending the commissioning to let their drivers’ park at the southern end of the yard.

The official commissioning ceremony would bring to an end, works on the 50-year old structure which is aimed at bringing efficiency to the work of MPs.

The complex has thirteen floors with two hundred and fifty two offices. The original 1965 structure now has two new additional blocks.

One of the new blocks will host a three hundred seater auditorium while the other comprises a gym, restaurants, a fire station and banks.

The Job 600 was constructed to serve as the venue for the 1965 meeting of the Organisation of African Unity, now the African Union, but the re-engineering of the structure was made to turn it into offices for MPs.
