Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state has directed political appointees aspiring for political offices in the forthcoming 2023 elections to tender their resignation before Monday, May 16, 2022.
Uzodinma gave the directive at the expanded State Exco meeting on Wednesday.
He said appointees willing to contest for political offices have up to May 16 to resign.
The governor further directed that such appointees should tender their resignation letters on or before the said date.
Uzodinma’s directive came a few hours after President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the Ministers in his cabinet seeking elective offices to resign on or before May 16 in obedience to the provision of the Electoral Act 2022.
