Firmin Ngrebada has resigned as Prime Minister of the Central African Republic along with his entire cabinet.
Ngrebada was sworn-in as Prime Minister in February 2019. He had served as President Faustine-Archange Touadera’s Chief of Cabinet before the appointment.
He had been one of the main architects of the Khartoum peace agreement in February 2019 between the authorities and armed groups which brought relative stability to a country that had been mired in conflict since 2013.
A spokesman for the Presidency said Ngrebada could be asked to lead a new government.
His resignation comes after strained political and diplomatic ties with former colonial ruler France.
Paris announced this week that it would suspend military assistance to Bangui, saying authorities in the African country are complicit in a Russian propaganda campaign against its forces and diplomats.
