Malami, Amaechi, and Ngige have till Saturday to resign as PMB’s ministers, according to the APC.

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has issued a deadline for all cabinet ministers and other executive appointees at both the state and federal levels to resign their appointments in view of their public declaration to run for elective positions in 2023.

 

According to reports, the ruling party made the move in a bid to stave off any possible violation of the Electoral Act by any of its party members.

In view of this, the party has directed that all government appointees must resign their appointments by Saturday at the latest if they intend to participate in the party’s forthcoming round of primary elections.

 

Section 3(i) of the APC Guidelines for the Nomination of Candidates for the 2023 General Elections states, “No political appointee at any level shall be a voting delegate or be voted for the purpose of candidate nomination.”

Any political office holder interested in contesting for an elective office shall leave office 30 days prior to the date of election or party primary for the office sought. “
