Nov 27, 2013, 9:55 AM

President Yahya Jammeh has relieved Nana Grey-Johnson of his appointment as Minister of Information and Communication Infrastructure, the presidency announced Tuesday, the second to leave the cabinet within barely four weeks.

A statement issued by the presidency announcing Nana’s removal did not give any reason, and no replacement has been named yet.

Nana Grey-Johnson, a seasoned journalist, joined cabinet on 12th March 2013. He was also Secretary General No. 2, a post added to his portfolio on 10th June 2013.

Late last month, on 30th October, Susan Wafa-Ogoo was relieved of her appointment as Minister of Foreign Affairs.

She has since been replaced by Dr Aboubacarr Senghore as Minister of Foreign Affairs.
