Buhari Won’t Dissolve Cabinet on May 22, Lai Mohammed ClarifiesFeatured, Latest News, News Thursday, April 25th, 2019
(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Information and Culture Minister Alhaji Lai Mohammed has revisited the announcement he made earlier on the valedictory session and dissolution of cabinet.
Mohammed in a statement issued in Abuja Thursday evening clarified that the sendoff session did not amount to dissolution of the cabinet.
The Full Statement is Published Below:
“The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said the fact that the valedictory session of the federal cabinet will be held on 22 May 2019 does not mean that the cabinet will be dissolved on the same day.
“Clarifying his earlier statement to State House correspondents after Thursday’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja, the Minister said it is the prerogative of the President to dissolve the cabinet anytime he chooses.
”It is therefore inaccurate to extrapolate from my statement – that the FEC valedictory session will hold on 22 May – to say that the President will dissolve the cabinet on the same day. They do not mean the same thing,” he said.
