Ivory Coast’s Vice-President Daniel Kablan Duncan has resigned following the sudden death of the Prime Minister Amadou Gon Coulibaly last week.

The secretary-general of the Ivory Coast presidency, Patrick Achi, said that Kablan Duncan, was leaving “for personal reasons.”

The vice-president had put in his resignation letter to President Alassane Ouattara in February, Mr Achi noted.

“After several communications, the last of which took place on Tuesday 7 July, 2020, the president of the republic took note of his resignation and proceeded to sign the decree terminating Daniel Kablan Duncan,” Mr Achi said in a statement.
