Indications have emerged that President Muhammadu Buhari is likely to retain his present cabinet as constituted till the tail end of the current administration.
This indication was given by the minister of Culture and Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed who told State House correspondents at the end of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja on Thursday that the president will retain his ministers till at least May 22, 2019.
After the FEC meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, State House correspondents had asked the minister questions bothering on when Buhari may dissolve his present cabinet.
Responding Mohammed said, “The cabinet is still intact. We are going to have a valedictory service on May 22.
“So, you still need to suffer us much; you will still see more of my face. Thank you very much.’’
Buhari had on April 17 asked his cabinet to compile a comprehensive status reports on policies, programmes and projects from their respective ministries, departments and agencies.
He had then asked them to submit the reports to the Presidential Audit Committee in the office of the Vice President on April 24.
