The President Working From Home Only Today - Minister

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has corrected the erroneous reporting, in a section of the media, of his
post-FEC press briefing on Wednesday (26April), noting he never said the President is to work from home henceforth.

In a statement issued in Abuja, the Minister said the President only decided to work from home today, not that he has decided to work from
home henceforth.

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.

Quoting verbatim the relevant section of his briefing, Alhaji Mohammed said: ''He (the President) wanted to rest TODAY and he asked the VP 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.''
