Sulayman Saho, the National Assembly Member (NAM) for Central Badibou has said that members of the parliament should not be blamed for the rising cases of covid-19 in the country.

Hon. Saho made these remarks through a telephone interview with our reporter at his Central Badibou base recently.

He stated that it is government who failed their responsibility to implement the state of public emergency regulations accordingly.

"If the executive had implemented the regulations accordingly, cases of covid-19 would not have reached this level, saying parliament would have supported any motion that came from the executive to protect lives of Gambians," he added.
