Member of Parliament for Krachi East,  Wisdom Gidisu has expressed disappointment in delays for the start of second covid-19 testing in parliament.

According to him, it is unfair that MPs have been left waiting for over two hours and the medical officials have still not surfaced to commence the testing.

This second COVID-19 testing directed by the Speaker of Parliament to ensure the MPs and staff know their status before the House resumes on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 following the 3-weeks suspension of the House over rise in positive cases.

Mr. Gidisu noted that he has been in the premises of Parliament since 10:00am, the time given  for the test to start but yet to see any positive action in that regard, ten minutes to midday.

“I have to go back to our constituencies and the test has not started. I have to go back there and have some final touches done within the weekend. There are funerals I have to attend before coming back to the House next week Tuesday”.

He further pointed out that he is desperate and does not know what to do. As to whether he has reported this development to the Minority chief whip, he indicated that he is yet to climb up and notify his leader about the development.

We were thinking they are late for some time, and they would be coming but for two hours nothing is happening in Parliament.  We have to draw the whips attention and if it is possible move back to our constituencies”.
