Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture has said that the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari at Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) for the fourth week running was because he decided to follow doctors orders.
Mohammed stated this while briefing State House correspondents after the FEC meeting, which was presided over by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said: ‘I know you will want to know why the President was not at the meeting. You are also aware that the President was at his office on Tuesday and worked at the office. I think about a few days before now we did come out to say he has been asked to take some rest by his doctors and he chose today to rest instead of attending the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
I want to use this opportunity to thank Nigerians who have expressed a lot of concern and sympathy and those who have been praying for him. We always said Mr President will stick to his doctors’ advice so that he can recover much more quickly’..
