Nobody should fret over the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari, as the machinery of government is in full throttle regardless, Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai has said.

He particularly told clamouring for the President to return to his job or be shown the way out that no such thing would happen as the government was in good hands, with Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, was effectively filling the gap.

Mohammed, who spoke to a group of reporters on the President, who has been out of the country for more than three months, and the issues surrounding it, maintained that though he was being missed by Nigerians, but the machinery of government had not suffered.

His words: “There is no doubt that we miss the president but I think government has been functioning very well. There can’t be a substitute for the president no doubt but I don’t think it has gotten to any stage whereby we find the kind of acrimony, agitations that is coming up.

“It is normal for anybody to be ill. When somebody is ill, there are certain things he cannot do but we thank God that Mr. President is improving and he will come back very soon. The important thing is that government has been working. We have not missed one single Federal Executive Council meeting since he left.

“Also, we have not missed one single National Economic Council meeting. Whatever needs to be done is being done because there are serious consultations between the Acting president and Mr. President and as such, I don’t see the hoopla about Mr. President being away.”
