“…And to stay outside to enable the period of safety to take place before they come, Mr speaker I speak in particular for the case of the Honourable Dr Robert Kuganab-lem, the member for Binduri who just arrived by Ethiopian Airways from Tokyo,” He said.

“Mr Speaker, the Honourable Nasser Mahama is coming tomorrow and he should stay out, parliament is sitting tomorrow and he will be coming tomorrow but when he comes he should stay out. Mr Speaker, there are some staff who are also being advised to stay out, some of them including their spouses like Mr and Mrs Ekow Akwa, they went to Nigeria, Mr Kwesi Amankwa, then we have Agnes Florence from Records, Abdul Fataw Alhassan and others whom we have advised to stay outside for the time being.
