Another resignation has hit the Nana Akufo-Addo government as Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Cylinder Manufacturing Company Limited (GCMCL), Frances Awurabena Asiam, resigns on Thursday, February 23, 2023.
In a letter of resignation making rounds on social media and published by a number of media houses, Asiam thank the president for having confidence in her and giving her the opportunity to serve.
The letter addressed to the Office of the President, however, failed to state the reason why Asiam was resigning.
“I wish the Government well in all its future endeavours,” she parted with some positive words.

Meanwhile, a report sighted by YEN.com.gh claims Asiam resigned because of interference in their job by the Ministry of Energy.
Meanwhile, other reports on social media suggest Frances Asiam may have been sacked, perhaps for incompetence.
This is because another letter dated Tuesday, February 21, 2023, from the Office of the President has appointed Genevieve Sackey to take up the job as the CEO of the Ghana Cylinder Manufacturing Company.
Many feel Asiam resigned because Akufo-Addo's administration has been hit by some high-profile resignations in recent times.
Kyerematen's resignation predicted to trigger more resignations
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh reported in early January that Alan Kyerematen's decision to resign as trade minister was predicted to cause some ripples in Akufo-Addo's government.

Dr Afriyie Akoto Osei resigned shortly after Kyerematen then Ebenezer Kum also ditched the Chieftaincy ministry.
Ben Ephson, a pollster, said CEOs of state-owned enterprises would soon be reshuffled.
