Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, has refuted allegations that the Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Carlos Ahenkorah was forced to resign by President Akufo-Addo.

He clarified that the President accepted Mr. Ahenkorah’s resignation because he was unhappy about the breach of the COVID-19 safety protocols and Deputy Minister’s stance afterwards.

The President was not happy about it at all, that’s why he has continued to admonish all his appointees to adhere to the protocols and at the same time provide leadership for the citizenry to also bear in mind that at least once you are at a certain level of government, you are expected to, at all times, raise the bar or standards with respect to some of these things.

Mr. Arhin also cleared misconceptions that the COVID-19 safety protocols were also breached by registrants and supporters at all five centers President Akufo-Addo visited unannounced Thursday, July 3.

On CSO’s calling for the former Deputy Trade Minister’s candidature as MP for Tema West to be terminated over his conduct, Mr. Arhin said that is up to the NPP to decide.

President Akufo-Addo accepted the resignation of Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Carlos Ahenkorah following admission by the Deputy Minister of his breach of the Covid-19 protocols when as a person certified to be positive for the virus, he visited a registration Centre in his Constituency before the period of self-isolation was complete.
