Mohammed said, “the news that the Federal Executive Council has been dissolved is not correct. We have been directed by the President that we should all go back and return to our offices. So, it is not true that the Federal Executive Council has been dissolved, it is still very much alive. We have all been directed to go back to our offices and I’m sure that we’re going to work up till 29th of May.”

It was earlier reported that President  Buhari was concluding his administrative tasks as his presidency winds up ahead of May 29 inauguration of the new president.
