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, today, to resign.

Many governors including Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti), Bala Mohammed
(Bauchi), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), Bello Abubakar (Niger) had earlier
ordered their political appointees to resign in obedience to the provision
of the Electoral Act 2022.

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.
