2023: Buhari Orders Malami, Amaechi, Ngige others to resign from cabinet

On Wednesday, President Muhammadu Buhari issued a directive requiring all ministers running for any electoral office in 2023 to quit by Monday, May 16th.

The directive was announced to the affected cabinet members at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Wednesday at a meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) presided over by the President.

At the end of the FEC meeting, Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed confirmed it to State House journalists.

Lai however said he did not have the mandate to talk on the fate of other political appointees who are also vying for elective positions but are not members of the cabinet.

Only the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who he affirmed was an elected official.

Among the affected ministers are Rotimi Amaechi, Ogbonnaya Onu, Emeka Nwajiuba, Chris Ngige, Abubakar Malami and Timipre Sylva.

They are by this directive expected to resign their ministerial positions since they have already picked up their expression of interest and nomination forms for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
