President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday presided over the Federal Executive Council (FEC) with Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and cabinet ministers in attendance.
The weekly meeting was put off last Wednesday due to the sallah break which Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, said did not allow government to prepare documents for the meeting.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the meeting holding at the Presidential Council Chamber, started at exactly 11:00 am.
It said that Aisha Alhassan, Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, attracted the attention of the photo journalists in the chamber.
The action of the journalists might was a result of her recent remarks on 2019 presidential election.
Alhassan, was on September 7, alleged to have submitted her resignation letter to the office of the Chief of Staff to the President following her remarks about the presidential ambition of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar.
The minister was later quoted in an interview with State House correspondents as saying that she would rather resign as minister than abandon Atiku “if he decides to run for presidential elections in 2019’’
