Carlos Ahenkorah has disclosed that he took his positive COVID-19 status to a registration centre but was careful about it.
Deputy Minister of Trade and Industries, Mr Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah, has disclosed although he is COIVD-19 positive, he went round some registration centres to see how the process was going when the Electoral Commission began registering Ghanaians for a new voter ID card ahead of the 7 December 2020 polls.
The Tema West MP admitted to Asempa FM’s Ekosiisen political talk show host Osei Bonsu on Thursday, 2 July 2020 in an interview that he toured the centres on the first day of the exercise – Tuesday, 30 June 2020.
“I decided to see how some of the centres were just operating. So, I stepped out into town a bit. It didn’t mean I couldn’t go out. My test results had shown I was positive a week ago and after one week, my doctors said I could step out,” he told Asempa FM.
“They [doctors] said I could go out, except that I needed to wear my mask and observe social distancing,” the lawmaker added.
His comment has angered a lot of people who believes as a positive COVID-19 patient, he needs to be quarantined and not freed to move about.
