Chris Ngige, the minister of Labour and Productivity obviously thrown off the guide and confused by the demand that ministers interested in political office should resign by President Muhammadu  Buhari, said he would still consult with the president and his constituents before deciding on whether or not to resign from the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

 According to him, a window period was given for those that need clarifications on the development.

Meanwhile, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, minister of science and technology and presidential hopeful, has resigned his appointment as a member of the federal executive council (FEC).

His resignation comes hours after Emeka Nwajiuba, minister of state for education, who is also a presidential aspirant quit.

Others are Abubakar Malami, minister of justice; Minister of State Mines and Steel, Uche Ogar, who is running for governorship position in Abia State, the Minister of Women Affairs, Paulline Tallen, who declared her ambition to contest for the senatorial seat in Plateau State.

The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, tendered his resignation even before President Muhammadu Buhari ordered all cabinet members interested in contesting the 2023 elections to quit his government.
