President Muhammadu Buhari has kept mute as his ministers who participated in last Friday’s valedictory Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, returned to the council on Wednesday.
The ministers were either physically present in yesterday’s meeting or participated virtually from their offices. They include Abubakar Malami, minister of justice and attorney-general of the federation, who attended physically, while Pauline Tallen, minister of women affairs, and Timipre Sylva, minister of state for petroleum resources, joined the meeting virtually from their offices.
Correspondents learnt that Chris Ngige, minister of labour and employment, is currently representing Nigeria at the meeting of the International Labour Organisations (ILO), in South Africa.
The four ministers were among other cabinet members seeking to contest various elective positions in the 2023 general elections.
Chris Ngige and Timipre Sylva had earlier picked the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential nomination forms to contest the party’s 2023 presidential primaries.
Abubakar Malami also picked the APC forms to contest the Kebbi state governorship primaries, while Pauline Tallen picked the forms to contest the Plateau South Senatorial elections ticket of the ruling APC.
