Member of Parliament for the North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has expressed total disappointment in how the COVID-19 testing of MPs and Staff of the House of Parliament has been managed.
Okudzeto Ablakwa said there should be nothing to hide with regards to the coronavirus disease since it is not a death sentence.
In a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, he asked that the "leadership by example" principle should be adopted in order to avoid stigmatisation as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

His comments come after Parliament reportedly denied the fact that some Members of the House and its staff had tested positive for the virus.
According to him, many world leaders and institutions of repute have not concealed the result of their tests, therefore there was no need for Ghana's Parliament to be an exception.
Okudzeto said by refusing to be transparent, a lot of lives would be endangered.
His post drew certain reactions from Ghanaians.
Simon shared the same thoughts.
Robert believes Ablakwa knew the infected persons.
Martin said even Boris Johnson's results were made public.
