Buhari Yet To Dissolve His Cabinet, Orders Ministers To Continue Work

The Federal Government of Nigeria has on Wednesday debunked news in certain quarters claiming the Federal Executive Council (FEC) has been dissolved.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed who disclosed this after the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday said contrary to the rumours flying around, President Muhammadu Buhari has not dissolved the FEC.

mNaija learnt that reports in certain quarters, particularly on social media had claimed Buhari had dissolved the FEC during the valedictory meeting today, which is the last of such meetings for the administration.

However, Mohammed while addressing state house correspondents after the FEC meeting in Abuja stated that President Buhari directed all Ministers to return to their offices and continue with their duties.

He said: “The news that the Federal Executive Council has been dissolved is not correct. We’ve 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”.
