Tinubu To Hold First FEC Meeting Today

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is expected to hold his first Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting today, Monday.

HeraldNG reports that the FEC meeting will be held at the Council Chamber at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, with President Tinubu presiding over the meeting.

The inaugural FEC meeting, which will be attended by Vice President Kashim Shittima and all 45 ministers, had initially been scheduled for last Wednesday, but it was postponed to give the ministers time to settle into their various ministries after their swearing-in ceremony two days earlier.

Sources in the presidency told BusinessDay that the president had informed his ministers that the first FEC would now be held on Monday (today).

The ministers have also received a memo to prepare for Monday’s FEC meeting from the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), according to a source who asked to remain anonymous because he was not authorized to speak on the issue.

“The president will be holding his first FEC on Monday. The meeting was initially slated for Wednesday, but it was shifted till this coming Monday so as to give the ministers time to settle into their various offices and get their briefs

“The SGF has also issued a memo to 45 of them, informing them about the meeting,” the source said.

Tinubu was sworn in as Nigeria’s President on May 29th, 2023, and has unveiled a number of economic policies some of which involved the removal of subsidy on fuel among others.
