President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that all ministers in his cabinet serve until May 29, when President-elect Bola Tinubu is sworn in as his successor.
Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, confirmed this on Wednesday.
The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has also not been dissolved, according to Mohammed.
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.”
