Member of Parliament for Bawku Central Mahama Ayariga has urged the Speaker of Parliament Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye to direct lawmakers in Ghana’s chamber to wear the facemask when speaking.

According to him it is uncomfortable wearing the mask and sometimes when speaking in the chamber lawmakers are seen taking off their facemasks.

He made this remarks on Tuesday, 19th of May 2020 when the House resumed for the start of the second meeting of the fourth session of the seventh Parliament of the fourth Republic.

Second Deputy Speaker, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin pleaded with the House to allow him take his facemask off to contribute to a debate on the floor.

Members on the Majority side said no he had to put the mask on to debate but along the line he had to pull off his facemask.
