President Muhammadu Buhari today failed to convene the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, for the third consecutive time.
Today’s meeting is being presided over by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
Buhari’s cabinet waited until 11am for him to show up, before the State House Chief of Protocols whispered into Osinbajo’s ears.
The Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa was also noticeably scanty, with only about 20 Ministers seated.
Osinbajo began the meeting with the National Anthem, as well as prayers by the Ministers of Education and Health, Adamu Adamu and Isaac Adewole respectively.
Two weeks ago, Buhari was also absent at the weekly council meeting.
The meeting did not hold last week, with the Presidency citing the Easter break as the reason.
