President Akufo-Addo has assented to Trade Minister, Alan Kyerematen’s resignation from office.
The President has subsequently directed the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta to act as caretaker Minister until a substantive appointment is made.
Alan Kyerematen submitted his resignation letter to the President on January 5, 2023.
The man popularly called ‘Alan Cash’ has long been rumoured to be nursing the ambition to contest the flagbearership slot of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 general election.
His resignation is believed to buy him time to campaign to promote the presidential ambition.
