The weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) that holds every Wednesday will not hold today following the order of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The cancellation of today’s FEC meeting was contained in a statement released by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
Adesina, who did not tell why the meeting would not hold as usual meanwhile, said that Buhari would today receive the report of the investigative committee into allegations against the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal and the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ayo Oke.
The statement by Adesina reads, “The meeting of the Federal Executive Council will not hold today.
“President Muhammadu Buhari, will however, receive the report of the investigation committee into the allegations against the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal and the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ayo Oke, headed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, at 12 noon, in his office.”
Buhari, before his travel to London on May 7 for a follow-up medical treatment that kept him outside the country for 103 days, was absent at a number of FEC meetings. Hopes that he would be at today’s FEC meeting, where the executive reviews national issues, and works out its plan of actions, has been dashed following the cancellation.
Since announcement of his resumption to duty on Monday after retuning on Saturday, Buhari has been operating from an office in his residence at the Aso Villa.
The Presidency claimed that he decided to do that because his office had been invaded by rodents and needed renovation.
