The resignation of the ministers was followed by an order by the president urging such ministers to resign to pursue their political dreams in the last Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
This was disclosed by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed on Friday while briefing State House reporters after a valedictory session held at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Friday.
