Ghana’s Parliament resumes sitting on Wednesday for a week-long special meeting during which lawmakers will consider a number of new multi-million dollar loan and other agreements.

But, Members of Parliament (MPs) will not be sitting inside the usual Parliamentary Chamber within the State House Complex in Accra.

Instead, a makeshift Parliamentary chamber has been prepared within the Accra International Conference Centre to host the MPs for the next few days.

The MPs will be working from the conference centre because the current Chamber of the Ghanaian legislature is undergoing renovation and expansion works to create additional the sitting space.

It is unclear how long the emergency sitting will last but sources say it might not exceed five working days.

Citi News has gathered that key among the issues to be considered will be a multi-million dollar agreement covering what insiders are calling the second phase of the ongoing Kwame Nkrumah Interchange project at Circle in Accra.

Sources say other financial facilities and loan agreements to be considered by lawmakers will help the country raise money to support a number of other road projects, including the planned construction of a modern interchange at Kasoa in the Central Region.
