Why President Buhari was absent at the FEC Meeting – Lai Mohammed

Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed has stated the reason why president Muhammadu Buhari was absent at the Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

The minister said that the president was absent at Federal Executive Council meeting yesterday due to advice from his doctors.

Mohammed stated this while briefing State House correspondents after the FEC meeting, which was presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He explained that the President, who was in office on Tuesday, was asked to rest by his doctors.

He thanked Nigerians for their concern and prayers for the quick recovery of the president.

“I know you will want to know why the President was not at the meeting.

You are also aware that the President was at his office yesterday (Tuesady) and worked at the office.

I think about a few days before now we did come out to say he has been asked to take some rest by his doctors and he chosed today to rest instead of attending the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

I want to use this opportunity to thank Nigerians who have expressed a lot of concern and sympathy and those who have been praying for him.

We always said Mr President will stick to his doctors’ advice so that he can recover much more quickly,’’ he said.
