Sarah Adwoa Safo, Ghana’s gender minister, has been relieved of her duties after being absent from work.
Presidency in a statement did not state the exact reason for her dismissal, but it could be due to her continuous absence, which has raised concerns in the country.
A new caretaker minister has been assigned to the ministry.
She had requested a leave of absence from President Nana Akufo-Addo for personal reasons, which was granted and extended in August of last year.
Ms Sarfo, the ruling party’s MP for Dome Kwabenya, a capital constituency, has also been absent from parliament.
Speaker of the House, Alban Bagbin, is expected to issue a written ruling on the matter.
Until her sack, She was the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection.
