Mohammed in his post-FEC briefing on Wednesday reportedly said that Buhari would be working from home from now on.

But in a statement issued in Abuja by his media aide, Segun Adeyemi, it was said that the minister was misquoted.

The statement reads in part, “The President only decided to work from home today (Wednesday), not that he has decided to work from home henceforth,” adding that the headlines in a section of the media, “Buhari to work now from home – Lai Mohammed,” is a misrepresentation of his statement at the briefing.

Quoting verbatim the relevant section of his briefing, Alhaji Mohammed said: ”He wanted to rest “today” and he asked the VP to preside over “today’s” meeting.”

President Buhari has been absent from the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meetings in the last three meetings due to ill-health.
