The president acknowledged that the meeting was the last as his cabinet for the 2015 to 2019 tenure, but told the ministers to keep working, whilst preparing to hand over to the permanent secretaries of their various ministries. It was expected that the cabinet will be dissolved to end President Buhari’s first term in office.


The ministers are to submit their handover letters to the secretary to the government of the federation (SGF) on the same date.

The ministers took turns to give accounts of their experience in the last three and a half years working with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Their narrations were mixed feelings as they went across various emotions, from humour to sober reflections of the few years working together as ministers.
