Simon Lalong, the Minister of Labor and Employment, formally submitted his resignation to President Bola Tinubu on Tuesday.

In order to assume his position as Senator Representing the Plateau South Senatorial District in the Senate, Lalong is resigning from the position.

A statement written by Dr. Makut Simon Macham, Special Advisor to the departing Minister on Media, confirmed his departure.

It was disclosed that on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, the letter was delivered to Tinubu.

Lalong clarified that following protracted legal proceedings, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was ordered to grant him the Certificate of Return and that the Court of Appeal had recognized him as the legitimate senator for the Plateau South Senatorial District.

He expressed his gratitude to the president for designating him as minister.

“However, after extensive consultations, it has become expedient for him to proceed and take his seat at the Red Chambers to continue to contribute to the Renewed Hope agenda of Mr President,” he added.
