The Chairman of the Parliamentary select committee on housing, David Tetteh Assuming has said the quality of construction work being undertaken in completing the ‘Job 600’ project shows that the structure will be safe and durable.
According to him, the building is in good shape per the committee’s inspection.
There have been reports that the job 600 building which will serve as office for Parliamentarians upon completion is not fit structurally, but David Tetteh Assuming in an interview with Citi News after a tour of the multi-purpose office complex, said the contractors have fortified the building enough to make it habitable.
“I think that they have done a great job looking at what we have observed. They were able to fortify the building so I think that we should allay the fears.”
He however suggested that for the public to be fully assured of the safety of the building “we could also have some independent experts to access but I think that the fear of a structural defect should not be entertained.”
