Tinubu to preside over FEC meeting today


President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will today preside over the second Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Presidential spokesman, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, confirmed this to journalists on Sunday night.

This is the first FEC meeting that will be holding in 44 days since the first one held after the first.

The three ministers recently confirmed by the Senate – Balarabe Abbas Lawal (Kaduna), Jamila Bio Ibrahim (Kwara) and Ayodele Olawande (Ondo) – are expected to join the meeting today, taking number of ministers to 48.

Also expected at the FEC meeting are the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF); the National Security Adviser; the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation; the Chief of Staff to the President, all the ministers; and some other executive principal officers.

Vice President Kashim Shettima will, however, not be sitting in today’s meeting, having left Abuja for China yesterday to represent the president at the 3rd Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

It has been revealed that the FEC meetings may be holding on mondays as against Wednesdays.

Also, the meetings may not be weekly as practiced in old times.

When contacted last week, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Print Media, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, said President Tinubu had a different idea of the functions of the Federal Executive Council.
