FEC: Buhari, ministers keep mum on Lekki killings

President Muhammadu Buhari presided over the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council, FEC, from the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Wednesday, October 21, 2020.

The meeting held just a few hours after soldiers opened fire on protesting youths at Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos State, and at a time of many reports of continued killings in some parts of the state.

Despite that, the Council kept mum on the issue and none of the Ministers mentioned anything relating to the incident that had turned international attention on the country.

After the meeting, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed; Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire; Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Niyi Adebayo; and the Minister of Environment, Mohammed Mahmood spoke to journalists on the outcome of the meeting and failed to speak on the incident.

Ehanire said his ministry presented a memorandum to the council on a bill to establish a Council for Traditional, Alternative and Complementary Medicine Practice in Nigeria.

While Adebayo, on his part, said the council ratified Nigeria’s membership of the International Coffee Organisation.
