JUST IN: Education Minister, Nwajuiba Resigns Over Presidential Bid

Emeka Nwajuiba, Nigeria’s Minister of State for Education, has resigned to run for president in 2023.

According to Anaedoonline.ng, the minister followed President Muhammadu Buhari’s Wednesday decree, which said that any minister pursuing a presidential candidacy should declare their posts vacant.

In this context, Nwajuiba resigned from his position on Wednesday.

During today’s Federal Executive Council meeting, President Buhari verified this, saying that the Minister had submitted his resignation to avoid a conflict of interest.
