President worked from home once not henceforth - Lai Mohammed

He said the headlines in a section of the media, ”Buhari to now work from home – Lai Mohammed,” is a misrepresentation of his statement at the briefing.

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday,  the minister said the reporting in a section of the media of his post- Federal Executive  Council (FEC) briefing that  the President is to work from home henceforth is erroneous.

The statement signed by his Special Adviser,  Mr Segun Adeyemi,  the minister said “the President only decided to work from home today, not that he has decided to work from home henceforth”.

Quoting verbatim the relevant section of his briefing, Alhaji Mohammed said: ”he (the President) wanted to rest today.

“He asked the Vice President to preside over TODAY’S meeting.

“In addition, he also asked that all his files be taken home to him and he will be working from home today .” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Channels Television online report of the briefing quoted the minister correctly.

The report on the website of channelstv.com has  the headline “Buhari to work from home today”

The report quoted the minister: “The President sent a word that he wanted to rest today and asked the Vice President to preside over today’s meeting.

“The president also asked that all his files be taken home to him and will be working from home today”.
