On Friday, it was reported that Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen had resigned from the government as the Trade and Industry Minister.
He tendered his resignation letter to President Nana Akufo-Addo on Thursday, Jan 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).
His resignation is believed to buy him time to campaign to promote his presidential ambition.
President Akufo-Addo has since accepted the Trade Minister, Alan Kyerematen’s resignation from office.
The President subsequently directed the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta to act as caretaker minister until a substantive appointment is made.
