The executive is to come to the National Assembly to request for an extension of the state of emergency and further introduce a supplementary appropriation bill to deal with COVID- 19.

The Nation will now get the truth regarding all the questions and allegations in the media and cyber space.

As the executive and the law makers preside over the affairs of the state, they should be bound by the dictates of the Constitution, the laws of the land, the National interest and conscience.

The executive should provide a fair account of how it has handled COVID-19 and what it has received to do so. The National Assembly members should gauge whether the statements from the executive provide a fair view of how matters stand with regard to COVID-19 and determine on the balance of reason and conscience whether what is requested for by the executive should be endorsed and supported or rejected.

The public should be able to follow keenly and come to a fair decision whether they are being properly represented or grossly misrepresented. This is how the democratic process could be put to work. Foroyaa will be ready to document this face to face encounter between the executive and the law makers for the people to develop a fair view on how they are being governed and draw the right lessons on how to safeguard the interest of the Nation and her people.
