The Presidency has, on Tuesday, announced the cancellation of the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting that holds every Wednesday of the week.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, made this disclosure in a statement made available to Journalists in Abuja.
He said the cancellation was necessitated by the on going All Progressive Congress (APC) primaries that is holding all over the country.
He said some members of the council were deeply involved in the exercise holding across states.
The statement read, “The Federal Executive Council meeting will not take place on Wednesday, October 3, 2018.
“This is informed by the ongoing political activities, particularly party primaries, in which some members of the Council are deeply involved in various states of the federation.”
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo stands in for the President whenever he is not available.
Osinbajo presided over last week’s meeting as Buhari was attending the 73rd United Nations General Assembly which held in New York.
