Introduction: Tinubu’s Second FEC Meeting
President Bola Tinubu is preparing to convene the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, marking his second since taking office.
This development comes after the inaugural meeting held in August 2023 when his new cabinet ministers were sworn in.
The Upcoming FEC Meeting
According to reports, President Tinubu is expected to preside over the upcoming FEC meeting on Monday, October 16, 2023.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 12 pm, and ministers are anticipated to be present before the designated time.
Agenda and Expectations
While the specific agenda for the meeting has not been disclosed, it is speculated that the FEC might focus on ratifying approvals previously granted to various ministries.
Recent approvals for projects and policies within the Works and FCT ministries are believed to be on the agenda.
Change in Meeting Day
Notably, President Tinubu appears to be changing the traditional day of the FEC meeting.
Previous administrations held the meeting on Wednesdays, but the Tinubu presidency has opted for Monday sessions.
Reasons for Delay in Previous Meetings
The delay in convening FEC meetings after the inauguration of the cabinet had raised questions about President Tinubu’s leadership capacity. However, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Print Media, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, clarified that there is no specific time frame for the FEC meeting.
He emphasized that President Tinubu had a different perspective on the functions of the FEC and that the delay in meetings does not hinder the governance process.
President Tinubu’s upcoming FEC meeting is expected to address key government matters and further demonstrate the administration’s commitment to its agenda.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
