Correspondents at the end of the valedictory council meeting, he described the report of the dissolution while President Muhammadu Buhari was presiding as fake news.
He said President Buhari had directed all ministers to return to their desks and continue working on their transition assignments.
He said: “I just want to make this clarification. While we were at the chambers there was a false breaking news that the federal executive council has been dissolved that is not correct.
“As a matter of fact we have been directed by the president that we should all go back and return to our offices. So it is not true that the federal executive council has been dissolved, it’s is still very much alive.
“…We have all been directed to go back to are offices and ensure that we continue to work right to the end of 29 of May. So please ignore the fake news.”
President Buhari had earlier sworn in seven federal commissioners of the Revenue, Mobilization, Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC).
The federal commissioners include Senator Ayogu Eze (Enugu state), Peter Opara (Imo state), Hawa Aliyu (Jigawa state), and Rekiya Haruna (Kebbi state).
Others are Ismaila Agaka (Kwara state), Kolawole Abimbola (Oyo state) and Ayuba Ngako (Federal Capital Territory).
