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.

"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.
