President Buhari cancels FEC Meeting - BellaNaijaPresident Muhammadu Buhari has called off the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting expected to hold today.

The president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina announced the news.

No reason was given for the cancellation.

Adesina did add that the president will receive the report of the committee investigating allegations against the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, and Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) Ayo Oke.

The vice-president Yemi Osinbajo headed the committee investigating the allegations that Babachir awarded contracts worth millions to a company Global Vision Limited, in which he had interest.

The committee had recommended that both Babachir and Oke be replaced.

The August 23 FEC meeting was expected to be President Buhari’s first since he returned from his over 100 days medical vacation in the UK.

    Very laudable recommendation by the Vice President.

    Oga president isn’t fit for any kind of work. Do the honourable thing and walk away. Go sort your health privately without pressure. Jonathan knew when to walk away, inefficient as he was.

    Isn’t all these the height of the corruption you claim to fight? From one lie to another, even rodent infestation!

    He couldn’t receive it on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or any other day except during the few hours meant for FEC meeting?

    Who else thinks that the president not being able to work from his office is all a ruse to cover his inability to discharge the duties of his office? To think that at the least , he’d try to attend to pressing matters and backlogs……only for him to call off weekly important meetings with no reason given.

    We are tired of these stories. Let him retire abeg. African mentality won’t let him and his handlers think.
    Nigeria is greater than one person or group of people yet this.
    Meanwhile, methinks he’s suffering from Alzheimer. So closely keeping in away from ‘outsiders’ is their watchword. 2019 is still away.

    odiegwu. Now I’m convinced it was the resume or resign protesters that chased him back home. Femi Adesina said the return was planned. So planned they didn’t clean up his office. So planned they visited him in the UK just some days earlier. Buhari has finally disgraced himself and rubbished any name he ever had. Clinging desperately to power when the whole world knows he can’t discharge his duties is the absolute height of it. Typical African leader. I’m sure he’s Robert Mugabe’s age mate. He’s here forming 74.

    I suspect there might be some cabinet reshuffle.

      Continue suspecting, lmao. Shame won’t let people like you admit that Buhari is a FAILURE.
