The Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on Wednesday said that he would resign from the federal cabinet “in a week.”

Fayemi, who is the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State, spoke to State House Correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, shortly after he was formally presented to President Muhammadu Buhari.

When asked when he will resign his appointment as a minister, Fayemi initially claimed that there was still a lot of work to be done.

He referred the reporters to Section 182 of the Constitution, which he said allowed him to be in office till at least 30 days to the election.

“There is still a lot of work to do. The Constitution, again, is very clear. What the Constitution says in Section 182 is that I must leave the cabinet at least 30 days before the general election,” Fayemi said.
