Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye on Monday briefed a selected media in Parliament on preparation being put in place so far to ensure that there is no spread of Coronavirus in the House.

Due to the limited space of the Speaker’s conference room, only a limited number of journalists in the House were invited to this press briefing.

He started by saying there are speculation out there as to why in this emergency times Parliament is still sitting. “There are matters of national importance which had to be tackled, whether it is war of weapon, disease, therefore we need to explain some of these for the public to understand”.

Also this is the House of the people where we enact a lot of laws and the public should know what we are doing for them, and pointed out that the media sees lawmakers wear facemask so we need to explain to the public.
