The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress Johnson Asiedu Nketia has called for the prosecution of the resigned Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry and MP for Tema West for endangering lives of Ghanaians.
The call comes on the back of the Tema West MP’s admission that he visited some registration centres even when he knew he had tested positive for the deadly novel coronavirus.
Though Mr Ahenkroa has since resigned from his portfolio, the NDC General Secretary says his resignation is not enough since his actions have the tendency of infecting many more Ghanaians.
He said: “We are calling for the prosecution of Carlos Ahenkroa because resignation is not part of our laws; the Covid-19 protocols, resignation is not part so we are waiting to see that he is prosecuted like the ordinary man on the street – they must prosecute Carlos.”
General Mosquito, as he is affectionately called, who is on tour of registration centres across the region made the call when he visited some men who were allegedly assaulted on Thursday by a police officer at a registration centre in the Akatsi North Constituency of the Volta region.
The three victims are currently receiving medical treatment at the Ave Dakpa Clinic.
