Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said that it would be left to President Muhammadu Buhari to decide what happens to Ministers who declared interest in elective offices but later backed out.
Alhaji Lai Mohammed said this while addressing State House Correspondents after the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.
The Minister of Information said he will need to return to the President to know the fate of the Ministers.
He said the final decision on who is going, who is coming back, and who is not going lies with Mr. President.
President Buhari had directed members of his cabinet who seek elective public offices in the 2023 poll to resign.
Nine Ministers had declared their intention to run for president but some of them later rescinded their decision.
