Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari ordered all his ministers who wish to contest in next year’s election to resign by Monday next week.
Information Minister Lai Mohammed told journalists at the presidential palace that Mr. Buhari gave the directive during yesterday’s cabinet meeting.
The move could have an impact on the running of government given the high number of ministers likely to be affected by the decision – though the presidential spokesperson told the BBC its activities would not be affected.
Several ministers have already declared their intentions to be their party’s candidates in either presidential elections. END.
