Patrick Achi has been reappointed as prime minister of Ivory Coast after he resigned from the post last week, Senate President Jeannot Ahoussou-Kouadio told a joint session of parliament on Tuesday.

It should be recalled that News Central reported that Prime Minister Patrick Achi submitted his resignation last week alongside his cabinet members.

On Tuesday, Ahoussou-Kouadio addressed a joint session of parliament. A reshuffled cabinet is expected to be announced soon, but details are few.

President Alassane Ouattara of the Ivory Coast announced the selection of Tiemoko Meyliet Kone, the governor of the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO), as his vice president just hours before the minister’s reappointment.

Ouattara hailed Kone, who has led the regional bank since 2011, as a “great economist” in a state of the country address.

The prime minister said his decision to resign came as a result of the president’s plans to rearrange the administration at a cabinet meeting in Abidjan last week.

“We have given the best of ourselves to execute your vision for 2030,” he told Ouattara.

Achi, 66, was appointed prime minister in March last year. He was the third prime minister in the West African state in the last three years after Amadou Gon Coulibaly and Hamed Bakayoko, who died less than eight months apart in 2020 and 2021.
