Carlos Ahenkorah resigns after breaching COVID-19 protocols

Carlos Ahenkorah resigns: Deputy Trades and Industry Minister, Carlos Ahenkorah has resigned according to a release issued and signed by the Director of Communications at the Presidency Eugene Arhin

Carlos Ahenkorah received backlash from a section of social media users after he confirmed that he visited Registration centres in Tema West where he’s a Member of Parliament(MP).

He was given an ultimatum to either resign or be fired but chose the former according to the release dated July 3, 2020.

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Friday, 3rd July, 2020, accepted the resignation from the office of the Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry, Hon. Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah, MP, which takes immediate effect.

This follows the admission by the Deputy Minister of his breach of the COVID-19 protocols, when, as a person certified to be positive for the virus, he visited a registration centre in his constituency before the period of self-isolation was complete.

President Akufo-Addo is admonishing all of his appointees to bear in mind that they are to provide leadership, at all times, for adherence to the protocols that have been established to help the nation defeat COVID-19.
In accepting the resignation, the President recognizes that Hon. Carlos Ahenkorah has acted honourably in the circumstances by resigning his office and wishes him well.
