The Majority Chief Whip in Parliament, Alhaji Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka, has denied media reports that the faulty elevators at the Job 600 was caused by leakages in the roof.

According to him, some equipment in the elevators blew up hence the breakdown.

Reports by Daily Graphic on Monday December 7, indicated that two of the elevators had broken down due to leakages from the roof.

The paper also reported that security scanners are also out of order, a situation that has resulted in security personnel at the entrances conducting manual body searches.

But, speaking in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM, Alhaji Muntaka said the elevators were already grounded even before the Job 600 facility was commissioned.

“The information that was given me is that, this happened months ago when the whole block had to be re-configured and a lot of work had to be done. And the old pipeline that were in the block, many of them were cut off and then new ones laid. But one of them which wasn’t fixed properly, so when they put in the pump to be able to get water to the last floor,  the next morning when they came water had skipped into some portions of the building. It has nothing to do with the roof and they finished even before the commissioning. Let’s not be creating a panic situation to make it look as if something extra ordinary is happening.”

Muntaka added that even though he was not aware of the faulty scanners, he assured that he would have them fixed after confirmation.

President Mahama commissioned the Job 600 facility barely a month ago to serve as offices for the legislators.

The complex, which was renovated with an amount of $87 million, has thirteen floors with two hundred and fifty two offices.
