Lance Corporal Isaac Lincoln Wassa of Recce Squadom in Sunyani, the soldier who made the headlines after he joined the fray of verbal attacks on the proposed chamber project for the House of Parliament will have a future John Mahama government promote him and expunge his crime from the records.
This is according to NDC activist and failed presidential candidate hopeful Stephen Atubiga.
The soldier was incarcerated after being charged for a breach of military standards when he recorded himself making unusual remarks as a soldier and released same on social media. He was sentenced to 90 days in guardroom.
The soldier advised President Akufo-Addo – the Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces – not to support the construction of the new Parliamentary chamber expected to cost 200 million dollars.
The “#DropThatChamber” campaign was initiated on social media with the aim of mounting pressure on Parliament to discontinue a proposal to build a new 450-seater chamber at a cost of $200 million.

This military man who has been abused and jailed for 3months, for speaking as Ghanian… Will be rewarded , convention record expunged and given promotion when JDM takes over next year.
We in NDC encourages men and women in uniform to speak up , rather than speaking up through their GUNS . democracy and freedom of speech should not be limited to your work or status in society. I will make sure he is rewarded. Please share the video to give him hope.
