President Muhammadu Buhari has asked his ministers to remain in office till the last day of his administration on May 29.
Buhari will hand over to President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on Monday, May 29.
There were reports that the president dissolved his cabinet at the valedictory Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday.
But speaking with newsmen after the FEC meeting, Minister of Information and Culture, Alh Lai Mohammed, said all ministers had been directed by Buhari to return to their office and continue with their duties.
“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 till the 29th of May. So please ignore the fake news.”
