The Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry and Member of Parliament for Tema West, Hon. Carlos Ahenkorah has resigned from his post.
His resignation comes after he undermined the COVID-19 protocols and visited voter registration centers in his constituency despite testing positive for the deadly covid-19 on June 23.
It has been reported widely this morning that President Akufo-Addo had given the deputy minister the option to either resign or be sacked.
Hon. Ahenkorah is currently isolating at home as against the earlier reports that he is in ICU at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.
Below is a statement from the presidency.
