Samuel Abu Jinapor, the minister of lands and natural resources, will take over control of the trade ministry, according to a statement from the presidency on Friday.

The appointment of Jinapor is effective as of Monday, January 16, 2023, pending the selection of a worthy successor to Mr. Alan Kyerematen, the departing Minister.
