Muntaka Mohammed, Member of Parliament for Asawase constituency has called for a parliamentary enquiry after news broke that some MPs are not corporating with the COVID team

Speaking in an interview on UTV's Critical Issues, The Minority Chief Whip said he urged that "we let Ghanaians know" and assure them "that they (infected persons) are going through the protocols but no one listened"; adding what is currently going on can breed stigmatisation.

"I’m sad because I warned that we thread cautiously and because of comments I made they stopped giving we the leaders of the minority information. We hear the number of people who got infected in parliament has even got up.

Muntaka was reacting to reports that some Members of Parliament, staff and journalists who have been infected with COVID-19 are not corporating with the COVID team.

According to him, if the reports are true, there is the need for a parliamentary enquiry and immediate disinfection.

"If this is true and people are not corporating; we need to call for an investigation or parliamentary enquiry. If this is the case then something amiss…this questions the integrity of the team conducting the contact tracing"

According to him, "what is going on in parliament means, the same thing is happening across the nation.
