In the hallowed halls of the State House in Abuja, President Bola Tinubu is currently overseeing the third session of his administration’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
The gathering kicked off promptly at approximately 01:10 pm and boasts the presence of high-ranking officials, including the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume; Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan, the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation; Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, Chief of Staff to the President; and Nuhu Ribadu, the National Security Adviser.
Notably, Vice President Kashim Shettima is currently abroad in the United States of America, while a few ministers, such as Hannatu Musawa, the Minister of Culture, Art, and Creative Economy, and Lola Ade-John, the Minister of Tourism, are conspicuously absent.
In a recent shift, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, announced that the council meetings will now be scheduled for Mondays instead of the traditional Wednesdays. He clarified that these meetings would convene only when crucial matters necessitate discussion, rather than a weekly occurrence.
