President John Dramani Mahama has accepted the resignation of Dzifa Aku Attivor as Minister of Transport, a statement from the presidency has said.

Mrs Attivor announced her resignation on Wednesday, December 23 following public outrage over the rebranding of 116 metro mass transit buses at a cost of GH¢3.6 million.

In the statement of resignation, Mrs Attivor adduced that her ministry exercises oversight responsibility for activities at the Metro Mass Transit Limited and had informed President Mahama over her decision.

The statement from the presidency on Wednesday emphasized the reason for her resignation.

“Her resignation follows concerns raised over a contract to spray and brand 116 new buses procured by government to improve transportation in the country’s major cities.”

Already, Chief of Staff Julius Debrah has received a review conducted into the deal by the Minister of Justice, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong.

It is unclear whether the Transport Minister resigned as a result of the review conducted.
