Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Digital and New Media, Bashir Ahmad seems to have resigned his appointment.
This follows his principal’s directive that members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) seeking to vie for any elective position must take the exit door.
A check on his Twitter account on Wednesday evening showed that Ahmad had removed “Personal Assistant on New Media to @MBuhari, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria” from his profile.
He now claims to be ‘Digital Communication enthusiast’.
Ahmad is seeking to represent Gaya, Ajingi and Albasu federal constituency of Kano State in the House of Representatives on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Buhari earlier in the day directed that all members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) running for elective offices should submit their letters of resignation on or before Monday the 16th of May, 2022.
Among those affected are Ministers of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi; Labour and Productivity, Chris Nigige; Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio; Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu and State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, who have all joined the presidential race on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
