The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has directed the Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele, ambassadors, heads of agencies, and other government appointees with political ambition to step down.

In a circular issued on Wednesday, the directive affected the CBN Governor who is among the heads of extra-ministerial departments.

The SGF noted that those affected should hand over to the most senior persons next to them.

Earlier, President Buhari had mandated members of the cabinet seeking elective positions to leave office.

The Minister of Information and Culture, who confirmed this after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday, said those affected must resign on or before Monday the 16th of May, 2022.

Nine ministers, who are seeking political offices, both at the federal and state levels, were affected.

Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, was the first to resign, hours after the President’s directive. Other members of the cabinet also followed suit and more are expected to toe the same line in the coming days.
