Meanwhile, the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has accepted the resignation from office of Hon. Rockson Bukari.

This was after, Minister of State at the Office of the President submitted his letter of resignation to the President on Monday, 29th April, because he had “taken note of the tape circulating in the media”, and had, therefore, taken the decision to resign “in order not to allow the tape to disrupt the focus of government in delivering on its mandate.”

He further stated, in his letter, that he resigned “as a matter of principle”, having “exercised judgment contrary to what I have known you to stand for and require of your servants in running this country.”

The President accepted his resignation, and wished him well in his future endeavours, Eugene Arhin, Director of Communications at the Presidency, said in a statement.
