Peter Kwasi Wiafe Pepera, former Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry in the NDC’s government has quit active politics.

He said on Wednesday in a letter to the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress that he was leaving to concentrate on his work in the private sector. "In particular, it is my intention to work with private sector organisations to help achieve the President's stated objective of 'Golden Age of Business' for Ghana," he said in the letter.

Mr Pepera said: "Being an active member of leading opposition party would clearly be at variance with my declared objectives in this regard." He sad he wished the party well in its endeavours.
