President Mohammadu Buhari has directed all members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) vying for elective offices to submit their letters of resignation on or before 16th May, 2022.

Lai Mohamed, Nigeria information and culture minister made this known on Wednesday, after the Federal Executive Council meeting.
