Buhari presides over FEC
President Muhammadu Buhari is presiding over the meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) now taking place at the presidential villa, Abuja.
He returned to the federal capital on Monday after a five-day stay in his hometown, Daura, Katsina state, where he voted in last Saturday’s state elections.
The president generated laughter among the cabinet members when he requested the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and his Communications counterpart, Adebayo Shittu, to say the Christian and Muslim prayers respectively, with a voice saying “no election.”
The remark was in an apparent reference to the situation in Rivers state, the home state of the Transportation minister, where the electoral process was suspended over voters intimidation and harassment.
