Ahead of the 2023 general election, Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has asked political appointees and public servants seeking elective offices to put in their letters of resignation.

This directive was contained in a memo issued yesterday by the State’s Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola.

Governor Sanwo-Olu also approved the release of all political appointees who are delegates to the State House of Assembly, House of Representatives, Senate, governorship and presidential primaries election, including those who are holding positions in the party as well as public servants who may wish to engage in partisan political activities.
