President Muhammadu Buhari today failed to convene the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, for the third consecutive time.

The meeting did not hold at all last week “because of Easter celebrations”, according to Lai Mohammed, information minister.

Today’s meeting is being presided over by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.

Buhari’s cabinet waited until 11am for him to show up, before the State House Chief of Protocols whispered into Osinbajo’s ears.

The Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa was also noticeably scanty, with only about 20 Ministers seated.

Osinbajo began the meeting with the National Anthem, as well as prayers by the Ministers of Education and Health, Adamu Adamu and Isaac Adewole respectively.

Journalists were later excused from the meeting.

No reason was given for the president’s absence.
