BREAKING: EDUCATION MINISTER EMEKA NWAJIUBA RESIGNS

Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, has announced his resignation from the Federal Executive Council.

This was confirmed by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, during the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council meeting.

It was gathered that in an apparent move to avoid litigations that might joepardise the chances of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates in the 2023 general elections, President Buhari had directed that all members of his cabinet, vying for elective offices should submit their letters of resignation on or before Monday the 16th of May, 2022.

While the FEC meeting lasted, Buhari had singled out Nwajiuba for braving the odds to quit, to avoid conflict of interest, and said: “I expect other members of this council seeking to be President to resign with immediate effect”, but other Ministers seeking to be Governors, Senators and House of Representatives members have failed to resign.

President Buhari said he received the resignation of Nwajiuba, the minister of State for Education, who is also seeking to be President.

Nwajiuba had picked the expression of interest and nomination forms for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), to contest the 2023 presidency.

Other ministers expected to follow suit include Ministers of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio; Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige; Science, Technology and Innovation, Ogbonnaya, who have all joined the presidential race on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
