General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) John Boadu has chided the Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah for violating Covid-19 isolation rules after testing positive for coronavirus.
The Member of Parliament for Tema East granted interviews to several radio stations in Accra, confirming he visited registration centres despite his positive Covid-19 status.
But the NPP Chief Scribe has lashed out at Carlos Ahenkorah for granting those unnecessary interviews.
“I don’t know which doctor advised that even when he has been discharged from the hospital he can still go around observing [the ongoing registration exercise] in the midst of a lot of people.
“I think that it is wrong,” the former National Organiser of the NPP said.
“For us as a party we are advising him that it is unfortunate, it is improper for him to go round monitoring the registration exercise.
“I think leadership should show by example,” he said, citing how some ministers of state have gone into self-isolation after testing positive for the virus.
There have been calls for the head of the Deputy Minister but that, Mr Boadu said, is “overstretched”.
“What all of us are saying is that since he has tested positive, it will be better and appropriate on his part to self-isolate.
“If you say he has broken a certain law, I doubt,” he told TV3
