Just In: FEC Members with political ambitions ordered to Resign

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked that all members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) seeking elective office submit their resignation letters by Monday, May 16, 2022.

Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, announced after the Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.

The ministers of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio; Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige; Science, Technology and Innovation, Ogbonnaya; State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba; and Petroleum (State), Timipre Sylva, who have all entered the presidential race on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), are among those who are affected.

Others include Abubakar Malami, the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, who is running for governor of Kebbi; Uche Ogar, the Minister of State Mines and Steel, who is running for governor of Abia State; and Pauline Tallen, the Minister of Women Affairs, who has declared her intention to run for a senatorial seat in Plateau State.

Mr Lai Mohammed emphasized that the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, is not included in this mission because he is an elected member of the cabinet.

He stated that any changes or additions to this instruction would be communicated promptly. If necessary, the Minister added, the directive might include political appointees.
