President Muhammadu Buhari has asked Ministers aspiring to be President in 2023 to resign immediately.
He singled out Emeka Nwajiuba, Minister of State for Education, for defying the odds by resigning to avoid a conflict of interest.
Other Ministers seeking to become Governors, Senators, and members of the House of Representatives, on the other hand, were busy trying to figure out if they were affected.
The President gave the order at the tail end of the Federal Executive Council..
The President, visibly enraged, announced that he had received Nwajiuba’s resignation as a candidate for President.
“I expect other members of this council who are running for President to resign with immediate effect,” he said.
“We weren’t sure if this directive would affect other ministers aspiring to be governors, senators, or members of the House of Representatives,” a cabinet source said.
“We anticipate more clarifications in the near future.”
