Ministers can only travel out of the country eight times in a year, Information, Culture & Tourism Minister Lai Mohammed has disclosed.

He said President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that no minister should go on foreign trips more than twice in a quarter.

Besides, no minister on a trip outside the shores of the land should go with more than four aides, who should be relevant to the trip.

Government officials below the rank of ministers are henceforth entitled to fewer aides.

Besides, estacode would no longer be calculated on hourly basis, Mohammed said.
