2023: Ondo Governor, Akeredolu Asks Political Appointees To Resign Within 48 Hours (Updated: 1 month ago)


The governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has ordered all political appointees in his cabinet to resign if they have any plan to contest in the 2023 general elections.

He gave the order based on the electoral act amendment signed into law by the federal government, recently.

The instruction was contained in a memo signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Princess Oladunni Odu.

The memo dated Monday 11, 2022 reads in parts: “As you are aware, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, Muhammadu Buhari has signed the amended Electoral bill Into Law and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released guidelines on the conduct of the impending general elections thereby signalling the commencement of intense political activities both at the Federal and State levels:

 “Consequently and in line with the provision of section 84 (12) of the electoral act, 2022, political and public office holders desirous of participating in the political process either as a contestant for elective positions or as delegates should resign their appointments on or before Thursday, 14th April 2022.

 “This is for your information and strict compliance, please.”

A good number of serving commissioners and aides of the governor have indicated an interest in some elective positions ranging from the state House of Assembly to the Senate.
