Reason Why Buhari did not hold FEC meeting – Presidency
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has explained that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting did not hold on Wednesday, due to the Easter break.
Shehu stated that the council secretariat had no time to prepare and circulate memos to Ministers.
“The staff on the Council secretariat resumed on Tuesday after the Easter. There was no time to prepare and circulate memos to ministers.
“By practice, the ministers receive council memos two or three days ahead of meetings because they must read them and sometimes undertake research.
“It is not a rubber stamp council so everyone must prepare themselves well for debates,” Shehu said in a statement.
Last week, Buhari was absent at the meeting, which Vice President Yemi Osinbajo presided over.
It was the first time Osinbajo presided over the meeting, after the President returned from his 50-day medical vacation in London, UK.
