The deputy minister for Trade and Member of Parliament for Tema East Carlos Ahenkorah has resigned
His resignation came after the MP granted interviews to several radio stations in Accra confirming he visited registration centers 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 with the deadly disease on 23 June and was asked self-isolate but he decided to visit several registration centers because he was asymptomatic.
Majority of Ghanaians have descended on the MP on social media describing his behaviour as irresponsible and undermining the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Presidency has accepted his resignation and wished him well.
