LONDON — Prime Minister Boris Johnson of Britain will resign on Thursday as Conservative leader, the BBC reported, after a rolling wave of government resignations prompted by his handling of the party’s latest sex-and-bullying scandal surpassed 50. The move would result in his departure as prime minister once the party chooses a successor through a leadership election, likely in autumn.

Downing Street officials said Mr. Johnson would make a statement to the nation later Thursday.

Following the unexpected resignation days earlier of two of his highest-ranking ministers, the chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, and the health secretary, Sajid Javid, a flurry of resignation letters had streamed onto social media almost by the minute.

Official after official voiced opposition to Mr. Johnson’s leadership, denounced him for a lack of integrity in office and called for him to stand down, underscoring his precarious position.

Adding their names to that growing list before 9 a.m. were Brandon Lewis, the secretary of state for Northern Ireland; Helen Whately, the Exchequer secretary to the Treasury; Damian Hinds, the security minister; and George Freeman, the science minister, among those announcing on Twitter that they were quitting and sharing their letters to the prime minister.

Nadhim Zahawi, the man Mr. Johnson appointed as chancellor of the Exchequer to replace Mr. Sunak, ramped up the pressure on the prime minister, in a letter that called on him to resign.

“Prime minister, you know in your heart what the right thing to do is, and go now,” he wrote in the letter posted to his Twitter account.
