Vice President Yemi Osinbajo
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is presiding over today’s weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the presidential villa, Abuja.
This is the first time he will be presiding over the meeting since President Muhammadu Buhari returned from his medical vacation in London, United Kingdom (UK) .
President Buhari returned to the country on March 10, after he had spent 49 days attending to his health.
The President was at the presidential villa as at 11 am Wednesday when the council meeting commenced. It is not clear why he stayed away from the meeting.
FEC, as constituted, is presided by the President and has the Vice President, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), the National Security Adviser (NSA), Head of Service of the Federation (HoSF) and cabinet ministers as members.
