No Law Says FEC Meeting Must Be Weekly- Femi Adesina
Adesina said this in defence of the president’s cancellation of the weekly meeting which holds in Abuja.
During a Channels TV programme on Wednesday, Adesina said the president’s decision should not be a cause for concern.
“There is no law that says the federal executive council meeting should hold every week. There is no law that says it must be weekly. Under a past administration, it used to hold once every two weeks,” he said.
“So, there is no law that says it should hold every Wednesday. It depends on what you have on the agenda to discuss. The president is the chairman of that meeting. So, he has the discretion to hold or not to hold (the meeting).
“The fact that FEC did not hold in one week does not mean anything significant because the president has the discretion to hold or not to hold FEC (meetings).”
