“Frances Awurabena Asia, with all humility and respect, wish to inform you of my resignation as Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Cylinder Manufacturing Company Limited (GCMCL).
“I thank you for having confidence in me to appoint and re-appoint me from 2017 onwards. I wish the government all the best in all its future endeavours,” read parts of the resignation letter.
Although the reasons for his resignation were not given in the letter to the Vice President’s Office and Chief of Staff, reports suggest that he resigned because the Energy Minister interfered with his work.
According to a new report by energynewsafrica.com, a source close to Avurabena Asiam has indicated that Francis Esiam has resigned from his position due to the actions of Energy Minister Dr Matthew Opoku Prempe.
The report indicated that Awurabena Asiam and Dr Opoku Prempe are fighting over the signing of a contract with GCMCL Ghana Gas Company for the construction of a new gas processing company.
It added that Dr Opoku Prempe wanted Genser Energy to replace the state-owned Ghana National Gas Processing Company with a new gas processing plant.
