Large turnout at FEC meeting as Osinbajo’s fear reportedly catches ministers

About 28 ministers allegedly attended the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Wednesday, August 15.

According to Vanguard, the unprecedented number of ministers at the FEC meeting may not be unconnected to the ‘no-nonsense’ stance of the acting president since he took over the realm of leadership from President Muhammadu Buhari who is on a 10-working day vacation in London, United Kingdom.
