In view of this, President Akufo-Addo has directed Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta to take over as caretaker Minister of Trade and Industry until a substantive minister is appointed for the ministry.

President Akufo however thanked Alan Kyerematen for his services to the government and country and wished him the very best in his future endeavours.
