President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said there is no law stipulating that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting should hold every week.
Speaking on Channels TV on Wednesday, Adesina said concerns about the cancellation are uncalled for.
There is no law that says the Federal Executive Council meeting should hold every week. There is no law that says it must be weekly. Under a past administration, it used to hold once every two weeks.
So, there is no law that says it should hold every Wednesday. It depends on what you have on the agenda to discuss. The President is the Chairman of that meeting. So, he has the discretion to hold or not to hold (the meeting).
The presidential spokesperson, however, said the President is strong enough to perform his duties and that the office in his home and the one in his office complex were only a short distance apart.
The fact that FEC does not hold in one week does not mean anything significant because the President has the discretion to hold or not to hold FEC (meetings).
