The former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has called on ministers and other political appointees seeking electoral offices in the 2023 elections to resign before pursuing their ambitions.

Saraki also faulted the request by the President, Muhammadu Buhari, for the National Assembly to scrap section 84 (12) of the recently signed Electoral Act which bars government appointees from engaging in party conventions and congresses to elect new leaders or candidates, without resigning.

Saraki said this while reacting to a question from our correspondent shortly after a meeting of the National Youth Leader of the PDP with the Zonal and State Youth Leaders at the Party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.

His reaction comes barely three days after the Senate, last Wednesday, rejected Buhari’s request seeking the amendment of Section 84 (12) of the Electoral Act.

The bill had scaled the first reading on Tuesday, despite a court order barring the Senate from acting on it.

The request was rejected after Senator Yahaya Abdullahi made the lead debate for the second reading of the bill.

The senators kicked against it; voting “no” when put to voice votes by Senate President Ahmad Lawan.
