Controversy.


He was compelled to resign from his position as Minister of State after testing positive for Covid-19 and flouted health protocols and going out to interact with party supporters. In 2020, he went to a registration center whilst he was Covid-19 positive. This was at a time when he was to have been in self isolation. For this action pressure group Occupy Ghana demanded his expulsion from government. He was given an ultimatum by the president to tender his resignation. On the 3rd of July 2020, he resigned from office. In January 2021, during a national live telecast of the election of the Speaker of the Parliament of Ghana, Ahenkorah was seen snatching ballot sheets from the chamber during the voting process, before they were retrieved by security personnel and opposition lawmakers, as he bolted for the exit. 

The Majority Leader of the eight parliament of Ghana, Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu denied speculations that he had instructed Carlos Ahenkorah to snatch ballot papers.
