No Date For Dissolution Of Federal Cabinet Yet, Says Minister

The date for dissolution of the Federal cabinet has not been fixed, the Federal Government has clarified.

Lai Mohammed, Information Minister, stated this in a statement Thursday evening.

The position contradicts earlier report that the cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari will be dissolved on May 22.

”It is 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,” the minister said in a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Segun Adeyemi.

“They do not mean the same thing,” he added.

He also said the president could dissolve the cabinet whenever he so wishes to do so.
