Vials and vaccines meant for the second round of inoculation against the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) have allegedly been diverted to a Constituency office of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), at Sakumono.

The party office which also serves as a personal office for the NPP’s Member of Parliament for Tema West, Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah, has allegedly become a hideout of sorts for vaccination.

People have since been reading meanings into the development, including the suspicion that the vaccines were diverted there in order to ensure that members of the NPP get vaccinated first.

Ghana recently received 350,000 vaccines for the second round of inoculation against COVID-19.

Meanwhile, at the Sakumono Community Health Center, members of the public who responded to text messages to come for vaccination found themselves virtually stranded.

 One such person describes himself as Samuel to journalists who interviewed him.

“Am Samuel…I had a text message on my phone that I should come for the vaccine at Sakumono Community Health Center…I was here around 9 o’clock. We met a Nurse here who was saying that those who have been assigned to come here are not here yet and there were series of calls and the interviewer was here on two occasions before this interview,” he narrated his ordeal.

WhatsUp News cannot independently verify the involvement of Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah; the same man who grabbed ballot papers and attempted to flee with them during the Speakership election in late December last year.
