Over the last couple of days the al-Hajj newspaper reported that Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen been readying himself in order to resign his cabinet minister position because he allegedly felt that “dumped” and “redundant”.
According to the al-Hajj’s report, Mr. Kyerematen has been reduced to a “lame duck”, not even being able to appoint the heads of institutions and agencies under his own ministry.
“None of the people he penciled to head agencies under his ministry were considered by the Presidency…” alleged the al-Hajj’s source.
Now in a post on his personal Facebook profile on Tuesday, May 2, Mr. Davis Opoku Ansah asked members of the general public to disregard the false news. He expressed that the Trade Minister’s relationship with President Akufo Addo is still in good shape, saying “Nana Addo believes in Alan and Alan believes in Nana Addo and his style of leadership”.
