Foul stench 'welcomes' Parliament from recess
A foul smell at the corridors of Parliament House
welcomed members on the first day of sitting after
a short break for the biometric registration
The repugnant smell, according to Joy News’
parliamentary correspondent Sammy Darko, was so
discomforting it popped in and out of submissions
on the floor.
The smell appeared to emanate from one of the
lavatories and got more intense in the corridor
leading to the main chamber and the Speaker’s
The taps were not running, but workers blamed a
spraying exercise early Tuesday for the stench.
The Speaker, Justice Joyce Bamford Addo complained
of the choking stench on the floor of the house.
Workers were busy getting the environment
friendlier for the day's work. The smell
notwithstanding, the Members were busy with the
business of the day, which according to Sammy
Darko, was pretty loaded.
The House considered the Public Health Bill, with
Science and Environment Minister, Madam Sherry
Aryitey answering questions on the floor on what
measures her ministry was taking to resolve the
menace of environmental pollution.
