The Member of Parliament for the Asawase constituency, Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak, is calling on Parliament to suspend parliamentary sittings which will help in controlling the coronavirus disease.
According to him, these measures will help in controlling the spread of the coronavirus epidemic.
“I hope that by now the Speaker should have received it because I am aware that it was sent to his office on Friday. We are proposing a number of things including that the House suspends sittings because from how things are going, if you listen to other parliaments around the world and how the thing is escalating, one of our views is that why not rather look at what businesses are of urgent need so that they can be attended to then you can suspend the House.”
“When we say suspend, that means we will not be rising. We will only not be meeting regularly but rather we will put the matters together and find a day where we will come and deal with them in bulk,” he said.
