Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, says it is unnecessary to be pestering government officials with questions on when President Muhammadu Buhari will return to the country.
Lai noted that the Federal government is currently more concerned about the security challenges facing the country.
The minister said this shortly after the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting in the Presidential Villa, Abuja when asked the exact date the President would be back by journalists.
He said he didn’t understand the big deal about the matter.
It was exactly 15 days yesterday that Buhari left the country for his aide described as a routine medical check-up in London.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, had disclosed in a statement that Buhari was due back in the country “during the second week of April 2021.”
But when asked about when the President would return to the country, Mohammed replied “Today is Wednesday; this week finishes on Saturday. So, what is the big issue in that one”.
He said the FG had demonstrated through a town hall meeting held in Kaduna last week that it was committed to the security of the country and not trivial matters.
