It's Not A Must For Buhari To Preside Over FEC – APC

Governors elected on the platform of the APC, have said that it was not compulsory for President Mohammadu Buhari to preside over the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

Gov. Nasir El- Rufai of Kaduna State made this known on Wednesday in Abuja, while addressing journalists on the outcome of the governors’ meeting with members of the APC National Working Committee (NWC). He also said that...
the constitution made provision for the Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, to preside over such meeting in the president`s absence.
El- Rufai, who was reacting to speculations that President Buhari could not attend the FEC meeting for the third time because he was ill, said the governors were not bothered by such speculations.

“We are not worried yet and have no reason to be worried, but we however, urge Nigerians to continue to pray for the president to be in good health.’’.

He said it was normal for the president to have medical challenge, considering the fact that he was over 70 years old.
