Former Deputy Health Minister, Dr. Okoe-Boye, has forgiven the lady who made fallible claims about tests at the Kotoka International Airport a week ago.
According to him, his stance come after the lady, Ivy Ankra, a US-based Ghanaian, rendered an unqualified apology.

But he noted that “As a person who follows Christ and believes in the Omnipotence of God, I immediately let go of ALL my reservations about a fellow human being once he or she says sorry. Remember there is none righteous, no, not even one; for he who claims infallibility knows not the Lord”.

The lady, however, in a recent video apologised for her statements noting that she has been educated that it is possible to test positive 24 hours after testing negative.
