Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari will have to decide the fate of  ministers who declared interest in elective offices but later backed out.

Addressing State House correspondents after the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday, Lai said he will need to return to the President to know what would become of the ministers.

“The other question about ministers returning or not going, I think you need to give me more time so that I can tell you exactly what the situation is,”
he said during the briefing.

“Right now, I need to cross-check. I need to confirm again from Mr President what the situation is. You see the final decision on who is going, who’s coming back, who’s not going lies with Mr president,
” he added.

President Buhari had directed members of his cabinet, who seek elective public offices in the 2023 poll to resign.

Nine ministers had declared their intention to run for President but some of them later rescinded their decision.

Meanwhile, Lai Mohammed also said there was no plan to ban Facebook operations in Nigeria.
