‘Political appointees contesting in 2023 should resign before April 11’ – Ovie Omo-Agege

Several appointees that intend to contest at the 2023 polls are yet to relinquish their present positions.

The Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, has called on all political appointees vying to contest at the 2023 general elections to tender their resignations before April 11.

Omo-Agege made this call through his chief of staff, Otive Igbuzor, in an internal memo on March 30, titled: “Resignation of all political appointees”.

“I write to draw the attention of all political appointees who are delegates to the State House of Assembly, House of Representatives, Senate, governorship and presidential primaries election, including those who are holding positions at the party, to please put in their resignation letters”, partly reads the memo.

Several political appointees have declared their intentions to contest at the 2023 polls without relinquishing their present positions.

Recently, campaign paraphernalia of the central bank governor, Godwin Emefiele, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, and others, have emerged, without them resigning their positions.

The internal memo said the resignation had “become expedient as a result of these provisions of the recently amended Electoral Act”, adding that “All resignation letters should get to the Office of the Deputy President of the Senate not later than 11th April, 2022”.
