President Muhammadu Buhari has tasked all ministers in his cabinet to continue until May 29, when president-elect Bola Tinubu will be inaugurated as his successor.
This was confirmed by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Wednesday.
Mohammed also noted that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) hasn’t been dissolved.
Speaking with state house correspondents, he said: “I just want to make this clarification. While we were at the chambers there was a false breaking news that the federal executive council has been dissolved, which is not correct,” Lai said.
“As a matter of fact, 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.
“We have all been directed to go back to our offices and ensure that we continue to work right to the end of May 29. So please ignore the fake news.”
