President Buhari to his cabinet- allow me to rest
President Muhammadu Buhari absents himself from the weekly
Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, asking his cabinet to
allow him to rest.
The meeting, which lasted barely one hour and forty-five minutes,
was presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, later told
State House correspondents that President Buhari asked that he be
allowed to rest.
The minister said apart from choosing to be working from his official
residence, President Buhari had also asked that all his files be taken
to his house.
Lai Mohammed added that the vice president would visit Buhari at home
He further explained “We just concluded the Federal Executive Council
meeting. I am sure you noticed that the president was not there. He was
not there because he asked that he be allowed to rest and asked the vice
president to preside.
“And that the President will be working from home. He has asked all his
files to be taken to him in the house. He will be working from home today,”
