Buhari Sacks Cabinet On 22 May

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said President Muhammadu Buhari will dissolve the Federal Executive Council on 22 May.

The minister dismissed the fake news that the cabinet has been dissolved.

He said the valedictory session will hold on May 22. President Buhari swore in the 36 ministers on 11 November 2015, with few departures recorded till date.

Alhaji Mohammed spoke at the end of the Federal Executive Council, presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

President Buhari left Abuja yesterday for Maiduguri, Borno state to commission a host of projects.

After the visit, he flew to London, United Kingdom for a private visit. He is expected back in Abuja on May 5.

*Corrigendum: Information and Culture Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed clarified later on Thursday that the valedictory session he spoke about did not suggest that the cabinet will be dissolved on same day. The wrong interpretation is regretted.
