The Economic Fighters League is the latest group of Ghanaians to have joined calls for criminal charges to be pressed against former Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Carlos Ahenkorah.

Mr. Ahenkorah, though knowing he is positive for COVID-19, visited a voter registration centre in his constituency with his driver, who has also tested positive for the virus.

The development caused an uproar on social media with many calling for his suspension as deputy minister.

Mr. Ahenkorah however tendered in his resignation after admitting on live radio he visited the centre for five minute while knowing his COVID-19 positive status.

Despite his resignation, there have been several calls for him to be arrested for putting the lives of many at risk.

Fighter General of the League, Hardi Yakubu, in an interview with Citi News said the government’s failure to punish the Tema West MP is likely to cause a repeat of the action.

He argued that the resignation is not enough to serve as a deterrent to others.

“The resignation is not enough. Why is somebody who has knowingly gone with a positive case to a pubic place being left off the hook? We showed pictures and video evidence showing clearly that we [EFL] indeed complied with the COVID-19 protocols, but that didn’t prevent them from still sending Ernesto Yeboah to court. Clearly, this vindicates our position that the law in Ghana punishes people who are in the lower class while the upper-class people are able to flip the law without being held accountable for their criminal actions,” he said.

The calls by the public come at the back of the imprisonment of some Church leaders for flouting some COVID-19 protocols.
