Again, FEC meeting fails to hold in two weeks


Reading time: 1 Minute

The weekly Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting has again been cancelled as President Muhammadu Buhari takes his re-election campaign to Ebonyi and Cross River states.

This is the second time that the meeting would be cancelled in two weeks consecutively as the president and Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo intensified their re-election campaign.

By default, in the absence of the president, the vice president presides over the FEC meeting where critical national issues are discussed and projects are approved.

Recall that last week, the President was in Sokoto and Kebbi states for his campaigns, while the vice president was busy with his house to house campaign, thus the meeting could not hold.

Meanwhile, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has defended the president’s decision not to summon his cabinet for the weekly FEC parley.

According to him, there was no rule that says FEC meeting must hold every week.

“During President Umaru Musa Yar’Adau, the meeting was held bi-weekly,” he reminded State House correspondents, on Wednesday
