President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday presided over the first Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting after the inauguration of ‘next level’ ministers.
Naija News understands that the meeting started at around 11 am in the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa.
Those at the meeting were the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, Head of Service, Winifred Oyo-Ita, National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno amongst others.
Speaking at the meeting, President Buhari charged his ministers not to fail Nigerians.
Reminding them of the oath they took three weeks ago, he said they must give selfless service to the nation.
After confirmation of the appointment of the 43 Ministers by the Senate and two-day retreat in the Banquet Hall, the ministers were sworn in by the President on the 21st of August, 2019.
Since the swearing-in, the President had given the ministers some weeks to familiarise themselves with their ministries.
