There are indications that the All Progressives Congress (APC) panel may demand resignation letters and letters of acknowledgement from aspirants that resigned their position in office to contest election, especially the Federal Executive Council members, who have declared their intention to contest the 2023 presidential election
This is coming as party sources said the APC leadership had included the requirement to ensure that aspirants comply with all constitutional requirements for them to contest election.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday directed all members of his cabinet vying for elective offices to resign on or before Monday.
The order came at the end of the Federal Executive Council meeting which he presided over at the Council Chambers of the State House, Abuja.
Firstnews reported that some appointees and aides have been rushing to the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation to submit letters of resignation and collect acknowledgement letters.
A party chieftain who spoke on the matter anonymously said, “From all indications, the party will ask appointees to come with resignation letters and letters of acknowledgement. All those who refuse to resign will just be setting themselves up for disqualification.
“At this point, it will be safe for anyone who is an appointee to just resign whether you are a minister or not. I am sure the APC will be issuing a statement anytime from now on the matter.”
