President Akuffo Addo has issued an ultimatum to the deputy minister of trade and industries and the MP on the ticket of the NPP for the Tema East constituency Carlos Ahenkorah. According to the President Mr. Ahenkorah should either resign or be fired.
The ultimatum is as a result of the deputy trade minister publicizing in several radio station that he toured a lot of registration centers with coronavirus. According to the interviews Mr. Ahenkorah granted to the radio stations, he said he visited registration centers although he had tested positive for the virus because his doctor assured him that after 7 days of having the virus he is asymptomatic and he wanted to see how the registration was going on.
