The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, presided over the second virtual Federal Executive Council FEC meeting in Abuja, the nation’s capital, days after engaging Ministers in a maiden virtual meeting.
Reports say Ministers were connected to the meeting via video conferencing while Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and a few Ministers with memos to present at the meeting were physically present in the Council chamber.
As part of measures to contain the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus, the virtual FEC meeting was adopted and thus far, the move has proven to be a success.
Recall that the first virtual Federal Executive Council meeting (the highest decision-making body of the federal government) was staged on Wednesday, May 13.
During the meeting President Buhari was joined by a few of his aides at the Council chamber where he presided over the meeting, while most Ministers and Heads of parastatals attended the virtual meeting from their offices.
