President Muhammadu Buhari has asked his ministers to remain in office till the last day of his administration on May 29, 2023.
Buhari will hand over to President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on May 29, 2023.
There have been reports that the president has dissolved his cabinet at the valedictory Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting of his administration.
But speaking with reporters after FEC meeting, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, said all ministers had been directed by President Buhari to return to their office and continue with their duties.
Mohammed said, “the news that the Federal Executive Council has been dissolved is not correct. We have been directed by the President that we should all go back and return to our offices. So, it is not true that the Federal Executive Council has been dissolved, it is still very much alive.
“The fake news that is circulating that the Federal Executive Council has been dissolved, it is not true. It has not been dissolved, we have all been directed to go back to our offices and I’m sure that we’re going to work up till 29th of May. So please ignore the fake news,” the minister said in reference to Buhari’s directive to the ministers to remain in office till May 29.
