Shehu stated that the council secretariat had no time to prepare and circulate memos to Ministers.

"The staff of the Council Secretariat resumed on Tuesday after the Easter".

FEC, as constituted, is presided by the President and has the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), the National Security Adviser (NSA), Head of Service of the Federation (HoCSF) and the cabinet ministers as members.

"It is not a rubber-stamp council, so everyone must prepare themselves well for debates".

The Presidential spokesman also dismissed insinuations of health-related problems, saying "that will not be fair".

The council which has Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, all ministers and some top presidential aides as members is chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari.

"Mr President is not ill again". He looked at the agenda for the meeting and decided that the vice president should preside.

The President Muhammadu Buhari led government is looking at suggestions to extend the whistleblowing policy to illegal weapons' possession by powerful politicians and other public figures.

"The President could not attend the FEC meeting because he was busy with other official duties".

"He is not ill, he is not sick". I just want to clear that misconception.

The meeting usually holds every Wednesday.

"The fact that Mr. President is not in the office does not mean that he is not working".

It was the first time Osinbajo presded over the meeting, after the President returned from his 50-day medical vacation in London, UK.

According Shehu, the tradition is that memos are sent to ministers at least two days ahead of any FEC meeting so that they can have time to read such memos and simultaneously conduct relevant research on the the central idea of the meeting.

His only "big" function was the launching of the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, ERGP which held at the Council Chamber inside the Presidential Villa penultimate week.
