First Rats, Now Sallah, As Buhari Cancels Another FEC Meeting

The Nigerian Government has announced that the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting which holds every Wednesday, will not hold today.

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed made this announcement in Kano, Tuesday.

Mohammed said the 2-day public holiday (Friday, Sept. 1 to Monday, Sept. 4) did not leave adequate time for members of the council to prepare for the meeting.

This is the second time in three weeks that the FEC is canceling its meeting for reasons many observers believe are flimsy.

On Aug. 23, Buhari who had just returned to the country after 104 days away on medical leave, canceled the FEC meeting, preferring to receive the reports on the probe of the Director-General of National Intelligence Agency, NIA, and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, this was after his Special Adviser on Media, Garba Shehu told the world that rats had forced Buhari to work from home.

The following Wednesday, the meeting held, with the FEC approving the Mambilla hydro project worth $5.79 billion.

Nigerians have since taken to social media to voice their discomfort with this latest development.

Some believe that the executive council should meet more than once a week.

Bear in mind that Buhari during the holiday in Daura, told Nigerians that he will reposition Nigeria for good.
