President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that all members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) running for elective offices to submit their letters of resignation on or before Monday the 16th of May, 2022.
The Minister of information and Culture, Lai Mohamed, disclosed this on Wednesday during the Federal Executive Council meeting.
Meanwhile, the directive excludes the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo because he is an elected member of the cabinet.
The Information Minister affirmed that if there are any amendments or additions to this directive they would be made shortly.
Lai Mohammed further clarified that the directive might also involve political appointees, if the need arises.
