Paa Kwesi Nduom resigns 6/18/2007
The Chronicle has reported that Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, Public Sector Reform Minister, has tendered in his resignation to letter to President Kufuor.

According to the newspaper, he took advantage of the pandemonium unleashed on Cabinet following President Kufuor’s promptings to a good number his ministers interested in campaigning for the NPP’s presidential mandate to resign and slipped in his resignation on Tuesday.

The paper said it could not confirm if President Kufuor had received the notice, but Nduom won’t be part of the government hence.

Nduom had been hinting about leaving for the last few weeks and his quitting to pursue his ambition had been on the cards for some time. It seemed there was no way that he was going to abandon the ship at this crucial moment when wage agitations had left the public sector establishment reeling and thus calling for his enormous expertise.

For his political career to come to full fruition, Nduom started as an Assemblyman for the Akotobinsin Electoral Area with his late father as his campaign manager.

He entered the next phase of his career, toying with the twin idea of going with his own political party which he has all but perfected, and retracing his steps to the Convention People''s Party (CPP) which showed no sign of uniting, but now seems to be headed for unity of some sort.

The CPP has roundly rejected him for campaigning for the NPP in Cape Coast when he joined Nana Kwesi Agyemang in pushing for the candidature of Ms. Christine Churcher against Araba Bentsi Enchill of the CPP in 2001. The party has not forgiven him for that and he has been unapologetic about it.

The Chronicle said one thing is certain though; no election would be fought in 2008 without Dr. Nduom staking a claim for the presidency, and he has built enough political stature to do so. The vehicle he is going to use would be crucial in determining whether he would be making some substantial inroads into the electoral base of NPP or the NDC.
