Why President Buhari Was Absent From FEC Meeting Today – Lai Mohammed

President Muhammadu Buhari continues to take a rest from official functions on the advice of his doctors, Information Minister Lai Mohammed has said.

He stated this while addressing State House reporters after a meeting of Federal Executive Council (FEC), which Buhari failed to attend for the third time running.
Lai Mohammed said, “The President chose today to rest, he was in his office yesterday, which you all reported. He is taking his doctors’ advice so that he can fully recover.”


Buhari was also absent during FEC meeting last week. Then, Lai Mohammed said the president was taking the day to rest and work from home.
