According to him, it’s possible any member of parliament who has been infected with the disease can easily transfer it to the other fellow parliamentarian, therefore it’s better all those MP’s who are tested positive stay back home for intensive medications.
Speaking with Kwame Tutu on ‘Anopa Nkomo’ on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7, Daniel Ashiaman called on the Electoral Commission (EC) to be mindful of writing names for the compilation of the new voter register, this according to him, in the midst of writing names coronavirus can be contracted very easy among residents.
Adding that "Since COVID-19 symptoms don’t show up early, if the Electoral Commission and his team don’t take care in the midst of registration, many people will end up contracting the disease. He advised the Electoral Commission if possible find a different mechanism for the writing of names or stop it for now until Ghana find solutions to COVID-19."
