The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has laughed off President Akufo-Addo’s decision to let MP for Tema West, Carlos Ahenkorah off the hook because he has resigned.
According to General Mosquito, the resignation of the Member of Parliament for Tema West is not punitive enough for the harm he allegedly caused.
Carlos Ahenkorah resigned from his deputy ministerial position following severe backlash after admitting he breached COVID-19 protocols by visiting a registration centre despite being aware that he had tested positive for the virus.
In a Citi News interview during his tour of Voter Registration Exercise in the Volta Region, Johnson Asiedu Nketia said the prosecution of the former Deputy Minister is the only way to show the government’s commitment to evenhandedly deal with offenders of the Coronavirus safety rules.
“There are positive cases identified at the Presidency, but nothing is happening. There have been positive cases identified in the house of Parliament, but Parliament is still sitting. Even when one case was identified in a factory, they close the factory down. You go to the hospitals, and when one case is identified, they close the ward down. Now in the House of Parliament where all these laws are made, they identified more than 13 cases in Parliament, and they are still sitting because they have to wait to pass laws to make Nana Akufo-Addo continue as President.” He said.
