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 ministers on 11 November 2015.

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

President Buhari left Abuja this morning to visit 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.

This is even as the deadline given to cabinet members for submission of handover notes expires.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on April 17 asked for a comprehensive “status reports on policies, programmes and projects” from cabinet members on their respective ministries, departments and agencies.
The deadline for submission of the reports to the Presidential Audit Committee in the office of the Vice President was April 24.

The 9th and 10th FEC meetings were rescheduled for April 25 and May 2 respectively in view of the Easter break and May Day celebrations.

More so, ministers were directed to “ensure that all outstanding memoranda they intend to present to FEC are submitted to the Cabinet Affairs Office, in the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, not later than April 30.’’

No fewer than 21 ministers alongside the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, and the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, are in attendance.
