He said: “We just concluded the Federal
Executive Council meeting, I’m sure you
noticed that the President was not there.

He was not there, because he asked that
he be allowed to rest, and asked the VP to
preside.
“And he will be working from home. He
has asked that all his files to be taken to
him in the house. He will be working from
home today.”

The Minister also repeated the same when
Journalists sought more clarification, he
insisted: “He was not in that meeting,
because the President sent word that he
wanted to rest and he wanted the VP to
preside over, and he asked for all his files
to be brought back to him, that he will be
working from the house.”
When asked that there was an air of
surprise back in the hall when the Vice
President called for the recitation of the
national anthem, Mohammed said: “that’s
your own opinion.”

Also asked whether the government would
formally apologize to The Punch
Newspaper over the “sack” of its State
House Correspondent, Mr. Olalekan
Adetayo, from the Presidential Villa, as
demanded by the organization, the Minister
said that the steps already taken by the
Presidential Media Aides, should suffice.

“I think we should not blow a matter out of
proportion. The Special Adviser to the
President on Media, Mr. Adesina,
immediately took a step that reversed that.
I think that is proof enough that this
government is not about stifling the Press.

“You forget it is the same administration
that restored the pass of Dutchewalle
Reporter. I am happy with what the Media
Aides have done. I think that settles it”, he
said.
