The Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) has made a passionate appeal to President Akufo-Addo to appoint someone of the caliber of Alan Kyerematen to be the next Minister of Trade and Industry.
According to the union, Mr. Kyerematen who has resigned did an excellent job while in office, it expects a professional with an industrious expert to succeed him.
“The Ghana Union of Traders’ Associations (GUTA) is deeply saddened by the news of the sudden resignation of the Trade and Industry Minister, Alan Kyerematen. All those who know him and happen to have come in contact with this affable gentleman will attest to the fact that he is an astute politician, a very humble public servant, versed in his area of duty, coupled with excellent human relations which have endeared him to all who have happened to meet him on matters of trade and industry, especially, those of us in the private sector.
“We can confidently say that he has performed excellently and left an indelible footprint that will ever remain in our memories.”
The statement further added that Mr. Kyerematen is not only an asset to the nation but also to the sub-region.
“So we see him as an asset not only to Ghana but also to the sub-regional and continental blocs, as well as the entire globe”.
President Akufo-Addo has in the meantime, appointed Minister of Finance Ken Ofori as the care-taker minister of Trade and Industry.
