President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that all members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) with ambition of contesting for elective offices in the 2023 elections should submit their letters of resignation on or before Monday, May 16, 2022.
This new directive was disclosed by the Minister of information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, after the Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.
Mr. Mohammed stressed that this mandate excludes the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo because he is an elected member of the cabinet.
Mohammed also stated that if the need arises, the directive might also involve political appointees.
