JoyNews is learning Trade Minister Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen has resigned from the government.
Multiple sources close to the minister said 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).
But it’s unclear if the resignation is to allow him to concentrate on that ambition.
Alan Kyerematen made an attempt at the leadership of the NPP in 2007, drawing 32.3% of the votes cast.
He was first runner-up to Nana Akufo-Addo who gained 47.96% of votes cast. Nownewsgh understands, the President has reluctantly accepted the resignation of his hard-working Trade minister and may now be considering who to replace him.
