According to a close report coming in from the presidency, the Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry, Mr Carlos Ahenkorah, has been ordered to resign or be forcefully ejected from his position.

This is an ultimatum given to him after he granted interviews with radio stations and confirmed that he has tested positive for COVID-19 but decided to visit the registration centres with caution.

Speaking in an interview with media houses at the registration centre, Mr Carlos Ahenkorah said 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 with the deadly disease on June 23 and was asked to self-isolate but he decided to visit several registration centres.

His admission has sparked anger among Ghanaians, most of whom have descended on the MP on social media, describing his behaviour as irresponsible and undermining the fight against the  pandemic.

As a result, the president has reportedly asked him to resign or he fires him.

It is expected that Mr Ahenkorah will do the needful in the coming days.
