MPs, staffs to undertake COVID-19 test ahead of 2nd March reopening

Members of Parliament (MPs) and staff of the House as at 8:30am on Tuesday, February 23,2021  were seen  preparing to move towards Parliament clinic to undertake their second COVID-19 test as directed by Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin before the House resumes from its three weeks suspension  on Tuesday, March 2,2021.

By 9:00am spoted staff of Parliament and MPs waiting for the medial officials to undertake the in the House, with a list at the entrance for each person to check their names before the test. 

Staff in some departments in the House were however undecided on whether to subject themselves to the test or not following a positive testing result that were handed some of the staff which later turned out to be negative.

They contemplated having the test outside the parliament in other facilities.

Some members of Parliament who were ready to take the test and move back to their constituency outside Accra were not happy the test had not commenced at the time communicated to them.  
Following the delay, contacted the Medical Director at the Clinic in Parliament, Dr. Pambo who assured that the test would come on.  

?The test would come on, I can't give further details because of the earlier negative media publications I have received on this whole exercise. If you want more on this issue, talk to the Director of public Affairs?, he stated.
