It was gathered that the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting is currently underway at the Presidential Villa, Abuja with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo presiding.
It was the first time the vice president was presiding over the meeting since President Muhammadu Buhari returned from medical vacation in United Kingdom on March 10.
The meeting started at 11:00 a.m.
Osinbajo, thereafter, asked the Minister of Defense, Dan Ali Mansur, to say the Muslim opening prayer, while the Minister of Trade and Investment, Okechukwu Enelamah, offered the Christian prayer.
The meeting was still in progress at the time of filing this report.
