Sequel to the controversy that surrounds a section of the newly enacted electoral bill which has brought different interpretations, President Muhammadu Buhari has asked Ministers aspiring to be President in 2023 to resign immediately.
He singled out the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba for braving the odds to quit to avoid conflict of interest.
But other Ministers seeking to be Governors, Senators and House of Representatives members were busy trying to seek clarifications if they were affected.
The President gave the quit notice at the tail end of the Federal Executive Council.
President said he had received the resignation of Nwajiuba seeking to be President.
He said: "I expect other members of this council seeking to be President to resign with immediate effect."
"We are expecting more clarifications soon."
