IF Zuma can say I tender my resignation with condition that I "#RecallMyFreeEducation"

Will you Accept his Resignation? Yes / No


In a press conference at Luthuli House on Tuesday, ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule confirmed that the party's officials had communicated its national executive committee's (NEC) decision to the president. 
"The NEC received a report from the national officials about the engagements with the president. The NEC noted that the officials had agreed with him in principle to resign. The president proposed he be given a period of three to six months," Magashule said.
However, the NEC noted that South Africa was experiencing a period of uncertainty and anxiety due to this issue, which could "erode the renewed hope and confidence among South Africans since the 54th national conference of the ANC", it said in a statement.
The NEC then once again engaged Zuma on the need to resolve the matter speedily, but he would not agree to a shorter time frame. This led to the decision to recall the president.
"The decision by the NEC to recall its deployee was taken only after exhaustive discussion on the impact such a recall would have on the country, the ANC and the functioning of government," said Magashule.
He said the party wanted ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa to take over the country's top job.
"The decision of the NEC provides certainty to the people of South Africa at a time when the economic and social challenges facing the country require urgent and resolute response by all sections of society," the committee added in its statement.
The ANC has officially recalled President Jacob Zuma despite his pleas for an extended stay at the Union Buildings on February 13 2018.
