Lalong Officially Resign Tinubu’s Cabinet For Senate

Simon Lalong, former Governor of Plateau State, officially affirmed his resignation as the Minister of Labour and Employment on Tuesday.
Lalong stated that he had formally submitted his resignation to President Bola Tinubu to facilitate his assumption of the role as the Senator representing Plateau South Senatorial District.
In a letter presented to the President, on Tuesday, the Minister reminded him that, following exhaustive legal procedures, the Court of Appeal declared him the duly elected Senator for Plateau South Senatorial District. The court directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue him the Certificate of Return.
Lalong emphasized that his decision to resign was not taken lightly, considering the trust and confidence the President had placed in him as a Minister in his cabinet. He had previously served as the Director General of the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign Council, contributing to the APC’s victory.
He said, “However, after extensive consultations with Your Excellency, critical stakeholders and my constituents, it has become expedient for me to proceed and take my seat at the Red Chambers to continue to contribute to the Renewed Hope agenda of your Government and the growth of our democracy at large”.
