President Muhammadu Buhari has failed preside over the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting today (Wednesday), Contrary to expectation as reported.

This would be the third consecutive time the president would miss FEC.  Although  his itinerary for the week showed he will be available for the meeting, vice-president Yemi Osinbajo is currently taking charge of the meeting.

An official statement from the State House last week had said that the president was recuperating in a private residence.

But on Tuesday (yesterday), a glimpse of hope shone when the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami and the Group Managing Director, GMD of ther Nigerian National Petroleum Cooperation, NNPC, Mailkanti Baru emerged from the Presidential wing and briefed State House correspondents on what transpired in their respective private meetings with the President, Vanguard said.

Speaking to newsmen after such meetings was not the favorite of both men. They have had to wave and smiled at Journalists who beckoned on them for interviews on coming out from the Presidential wing of the State House in the time past.

Apparently, this known culture was what pulled a surprise in the estimation of many. Similarly, the Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari the same day said in a tweet that her husband was not as sick as perceived, saying he has continued to person his responsibilities. Yet, surprisingly, the President who was in office on Tuesday couldn’t attend FEC on Wednesday.

Like the previous times, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is presiding. At exactly 11 am, he called for recitation of the national anthem to signal the commencement of the meeting. Thereafter, he called the Minister of Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Mohammed Bello and the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Udo Udoma for Muslim and Christain prayers respectively. Then, Journalists were excused from the meeting.
