The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Khadija Ibrahim, has resigned her appointment.
She would be running for election as a member of the House of Representatives in the February the 16th polls.
Mrs Ibrahim confirmed to some State House correspondents that Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council meeting would be her last. She spoke shortly before the commencement of the meeting.
Her resignation comes a month after the former Minister of State for Environment, Ibrahim Jubril, resigned following his selection as the 13th Emir of Nasarawa.
Recall that she had last year contested against and defeated her son-in law, Mohammed Bukar-Ibrahim, to pick the ticket of the All Progressives Congress in October 2018
