President Muhammadu Buhari, Wednesday presided over the valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council, FEC, with a directive that the Ministers should handover their ministries to the Permanent Secretaries on Tuesday, May 28.
His second term in office starts on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 when he will be officially sworn into office.
Many of the present Ministers will not return to the cabinet on account of poor performance or alleged corrupt practices, hence Wednesday’s FEC meeting would be their last.
This is as President Buhari received reports of killings in his home state, Katsina, on Tuesday with shock, assuring citizens that the government will restore peace and stability in the polity.
The President, according to a statement by Garba Shehu, his Senior Special Assistant (Media & Publicity)
directed Acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar Adamu and Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin to constitute an assessment team to intervene immediately in the state, and bring a feedback.
President Buhari, specifically, instructed the security chiefs to find out how the operation was carried out by the perpetrators and put in place structures to prevent future occurrence.
The President, who has been briefed on the criminal and political intents of the attacks in Katsina and other parts of the North, described the carnage as senseless.
He admonished that all those instigating violence in the North and other parts of the country will be exposed and made to face the wrath of the law and commiserated with the Governor and people of Katsina State over the losses.
