The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has ordered all heads of agencies, departments, parastatals, and ambassadors with political ambitions to resign.
In a circular obtained on Thursday morning, our correspondent observed that the office of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, among other agencies was copied.
The circular was signed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.
The circular with reference number SGF/OP/ I/S.3/XII/ 173 was titled, ‘Ministers, heads of government agencies, ambassadors and other appointees with political ambitions to resign’.
Emefiele, who is a member of the All Progressives Congress, had joined the presidential race of the ruling All Progressives Congress when some groups bought him the party’s N100m form.
Many lawyers and civil society organisations had criticised the apex bank governor for meddling in politics.
