Buhari presides over FEC meeting — the first time in 20 weeks

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday presided over his first meeting ‎of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) since Wednesday April 12.



    The President had missed four consecutive FEC meetings between April 12 and May 3, before eventually travelling to London, United Kingdom, on medical vacation.

    He returned to the country on Saturday August 19 but cancelled what would have been the first FEC meeting four days later, raising fears that he hadn’t returned to full fitness.

    At Wednesday’s meeting, ministers offered prayers for the President, who, before the meeting, received the Nigerian women basketball team who recently emerged African champions.

    Each member of that team received a gift of N1million from the president.
