Alhaji Mohammed has insisted that there can be no substitute for President Buhari.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja, the minister said though the president is being missed, he said the country has remained in steady hands.
Mohammed said: “There is no doubt that we miss the president but I think the 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 are 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.
