Nasarawa State Governor Abdullahi Sule, has advised political appointees seeking to run for political office, or, supporting others to run for political office to resign their appointments.

Governor Sule, made the call in a letter signed by the Secretary to the Government of Nasarawa State, Barrister Mohammed Ubandoma Aliyu, dated April 16th, 2024.

According to the letter, political appointees seeking to vie for political office are advised to either resign their appointments or wait until the lifting of the existing ban on political activities by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

While noting with dismay that some political office holders under the present administration are actively participating in political activities, including active campaign, Governor Sule warned such elements against conducts capable of breeching the electoral act, as well as distracting the focus of his administration.

“Consequently, all political office holders with the ambition to contest political positions and supporting others who wish to contest are hereby advised to resign their appointments or wait until the ban on political activities is lifted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC),” the statement reads.

He warned that his administration would no longer condone such acts of disloyalty and insubordination from political appointees.

The letter emphasized that, with only one year into the second tenure of the administration, Governor Sule is focused on the delivery of infrastructural development, economic empowerment, and sustainable development of the state and as such could not afford to be distracted.
