- The resignation of the deputy Agric Minister was confirmed by the Director of Communications at the presidency Eugene Arhin
- The resignation comes days after he was accused of making ethnic comments against people from the north
Majority of Ghanaians have taken to social media to give their take on the resignation of the deputy minister for Agriculture, William Quaitoo.
The minister came under the spotlight after appearing to denigrate the people of Northern Ghana in an interview with Accra-based Starr FM.
In the said interview, he described northerners as "difficult people" adding that people from that part of Ghana cannot be trusted.
The deputy Agric minister later rendered an unqualified apology to the people of Northern Ghana for his disparaging utterances, while clarifying that his comments were taken out of context and that he meant to say Ghanaians in general were difficult people to deal with.
However, despite his apology, Mr. Quaitoo came under increasing pressure by sections of Ghanaians, with the minority in Parliament requesting that he be sacked by the president.
On Tuesday it was confirmed that he had finally tendered in his resignation letter to the president, ending his short stint as a deputy Agric minister.
Majority of Ghanaians, though, took to social media to share the opinions on his resignation.
