Tinubu presides over FEC meeting, swears in two commissioners for NPC

President Bola Tinubu is currently presiding over a Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the Council Chambers of the State House in Abuja.

The meeting, which began around 12:50 p.m. on Monday, May 13, is attended by all cabinet members.

The meeting opened with the swearing-in of two Federal Commissioners of the National Population Commission (NPC).

Their swearing-in came weeks after 17 of their colleagues took the oath of office in March.

Meanwhile, the FEC, which is currently ongoing, also observed a minute’s silence in honour of two former ministers; one-time minister of education, Professor Fabian Osuji, and former Minister of Science, Technology, and Innovation, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, before going into closed doors.

Osuji, who died at the age of 82 in February, served as minister of education during the tenure of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, where he played a key role in initiating policies that impacted positively the sector.

Onu, who died at the age of 72, was appointed Minister of Science and Technology during the tenure of former President Muhammadu Buhari.

The FEC, which was ongoing while this report was being put together, has the Vice President, Kashim Shettima; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume; Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila; the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan; and most of the other members of the Council in attendance.
