The National Assembly member for Baddibu Central has hinted a possible social unrest if lawmakers passed another extension of 45 days of national lockdown to contain spread of coronavirus.

Sulayman Saho said: “I am totally against this motion and I have my reasons because this could lead to social unrest.”

The assembly has been debating possible extension of the lockdown.

The House Committee on Health on Friday submitted a report recommending 21 days of extension to the current lockdown.

But Justice minister, Abubacarr Tambadou, on Saturday tabled a motion seeking extension of the public emergency for 45 days.

However lawmakers have unanimously rejected the government’s 45 days extension motion. The parliament will resume on Monday for another debate after the Justice minister was asked to change the 45 days extension motion.
