Chris Ngige has abandoned his presidential ambition after being told he won’t be returning to the cabinet if he loses the ruling party’s primary.

The labour minister said he met President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday and got clarification that his resignation would mean he would be out of government, which expires next year.

Mr Ngigi had been asked to resign his position as labour minister to concentrate on his presidential ambition. He issued a statement saying he would meet the president to clarify the demand for resignation.

It remained unclear whether or not the president insisted on his resignation since he had already declared his political ambition before a circular was issued on May 11.
