“I’m Not In A Hurry To Resign”- Is Ngige Defying Buhari’s Order?
Nigeria’s Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige says he’s not in a rush to leave office.
He was reacting to President Muhamadu Buhari’s directive that all ministers seeking for any elective office in 2023 should drop their letter of resignation.
The President gave this directive at the Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting in the capital city of Abuja on Wednesday. He told ministers who have declared their presidential ambition to resign before Monday 16th of May.
Ngige said that he has to consult with President Buhari and his constituents before any resignation.
