The Chairperson of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Josephine Nkrumah is calling for the immediate arrest of Members of Parliament who tested positive for the novel coronavirus pandemic yet failing to self-isolate as required by the medical protocols.

The NCCE boss finds it absurd and senseless for no mean persons like legislators in the country to consciously put other people at risk instead of seeking treatment after contracting the virus.

To her, this conduct of theirs is a drawback in the country’s quest to fight the disease.

COVID-19: Stop inviting visitors to Parliament – Majority Leader to MPs, staff

Speaking in an interview monitored by ABC News on Monday, June 15, 2020, the Chairperson of NCCE noted that “I think it is damn right preposterous and irresponsible. I think people should be made to answer for why they are endangering other lives. I don’t understand why some of the MPs have chosen to lament about it. It is almost nonsensical to think that this is going on.”

“Personally, I can’t believe that somebody has COVID-19 and is still walking around. How do you convince your constituents that this is real? I think honestly they must be brought to book, none of us is above the law. The speaker of parliament should call them to order and insist that they self-isolate. They shouldn’t be allowed into the chamber. And if they insist the security agencies should pick them,” she fumed.

This call from the NCCE boss follows claims by Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu that some MPs, staff, and journalists who have tested positive for the virus are still reporting to work in defiance of the safety protocols which mandatorily requires them to self-isolate.
