President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that all members of the Federal Executive council running for elective offices must submit their letters of resignation on or before Monday the 16th of May, 2022.
The president gave this directive on Wednesday during the FEC meeting in Abuja where members of his federal executive council participated.
However, the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osibanjo who is also seeking for election into the office of president is excluded from the president’s directive being an elected member of FEC.
Some FEC Members affected include, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, Godswill Akpabio, T. Sylva, Ogbonnaya Onu, Chris Ngige, Abubakar Malami, Pauline Tallen, Emeka Nwajiebu, Uche Ogar, and so on.
“The directive might be extended to other appointees if need arises,” according to Lai Mohamed.
True Blue Reporters recalls that many of the ministers in President Buhari’s cabinet are seeking for one elective office or the other ahead of 2023. Many have also gone ahead to declare and pick intent and nomination form for the presidential race.
Some others are seeking to be governor in their various states and other elective offices. It is not certain if the president will urgently extend same directive to others seeking for election in various government agencies.
