President John Evans Atta Mills has withdrawn the nomination of Mr Moses Asaga as Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing.
This was contained in a statement on Friday signed by Mr Mahama Ayariga, Presidential Spokesman.
No reason was given for President Mills' action.
Mr Asaga, MP for Nabdam, served as Deputy Minister of Finance and Economic Planning in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) under former President Jerry John Rawlings.
He was also for several years the spokesman for economic issues of the NDC in parliament during the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration.
