Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has asked political appointees and other public servants aspiring for elective positions in 2023 to resign before Monday, April 18.
Ganduje’s directive was contained in a statement issued on Sunday by his media aide, Abba Anwar, who hinged the decision on the provision of the Electoral Act 2022.
The governor said appointees willing to contest for political offices have up to Monday to resign.
Section 84 (12) of the Electoral Act 2022, signed by President Muhammadu Buhari, stipulates that political appointees aspiring to contest elections must resign their positions before the conduct of political party primaries.
