2023:APC Gives Amaechi, Ngige, Others Four Days To Resign




All political appointees who aspire to participate in the primary elections of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) have been told to resign at least 30 days before the conduct of the primaries.

This is according to the new electoral guidelines released by the APC on Tuesday, April 26.

According to Section 3(i) of the APC’s guidelines for the conduct of primaries, “No political appointee at any level shall be a voting delegate or be voted for the purpose of the nomination of candidates.

“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.”

According to the APC primary election’s timetable, the presidential primary is scheduled to hold between May 30 and June 1.

Meanwhile, governorship, senate, federal, and state assembly primary elections to select APC candidates for the general elections, according to the timetable, will hold between May 18 and 23, meaning that appointees for such positions who refused to resign between April 18 and 23 would; have lost whatever was left of their chances to contest in the primaries.

The duo of the Ministers of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, and that of Labour and Productivity, Chris Nigige, have declared their intent to run for president.
