Fears that President Muhammadu Buhari may not be feeling fine again was on Wednesday confirmed as he failed to attend the weekly Federal Executive Council, FEC meeting, for the third consecutive time.
In his absence, the meeting was chaired by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
There have been fears on the state of health of the President since he returned from London where he had gone for medical vacation.
Buhari’s cabinet waited until 11am for him to show up, before the State House Chief of Protocols whispered into Osinbajo’s ears.
The Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa was also noticeably scanty, with only about 20 Ministers seated.
Osinbajo began the meeting with the National Anthem, as well as prayers by the Ministers of Education and Health, Adamu Adamu and Isaac Adewole respectively.
