Barely a day after members of the opposition National Democratic Congress took to the streets to hold a demonstration dubbed "Kum Yen Preko”, Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia has exposed the party on social media.

Sources inside Jubilee House tell the Daily Statesman that President Akufo-Addo is set against moves by Parliament’s leadership and other senior figures in the House to embark on building a new debating chamber for MPs.
