Speaking on the Presidential order on Monday, Lai Mohammed hinted that President Muhammadu Buhari in a directive issued has directed that no minister should go on foreign trips more than twice in a quarter.
Likewise, he said the President also directed that no minister on a trip outside Nigeria should go with more than four aides, who should be relevant to the trip, while government officials below the rank of ministers are, henceforth, entitled to fewer aids.
