The President of The Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo has given an ultimatum to Deputy Minister of Trade, and MP for Tema East, Carlos Ahenkorah to resign from his position or be sacked.
The President’s ultimatum was given to him after the MP granted interviews to several radio stations in Accra confirming he visited registration centres despite his COVID-19 positive status.
According to Mr Ahenkorah, he was admitted at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on Thursday but was discharged on Friday morning after his condition improved.
He also confirmed that he was diagnosed of the deadly disease on 23 June and was asked self-isolate but he decided to visit several registration centres because he was asymptomatic.
The MP’s action has been tagged by many well-meaning Ghanaians as irresponsible, considering the fact that he willingly exposed other persons to the deadly virus.
Starr Fm has gathered that moments after the MP’s embarassing interview was brought to the attention of the President, he has directed that the deputy minister should willingly resign or be sacked.
