President Bola Tinubu issued a stern warning to individuals lacking authorization, cautioning them against attending the weekly federal executive council (FEC) meetings.

President Bola Tinubu sounded the alarm after noticing that some unauthorized persons had gained access to the council chamber in the State House.

Addressing attendees prior to the FEC meeting’s commencement on Monday at the presidential villa, Tinubu expressed his concern about individuals discreetly entering and exiting the council chamber.

“Last week, I observed individuals sneaking in and out of this council. People were gaining access to this place without proper authorization, which is unacceptable,” stated Tinubu.

He then officially announced the authorized attendees, including Hadiza Usman, the special adviser on policy coordination, Bayo Onanuga, the special adviser on information and strategy, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, the principal private secretary, and Damilotun Aderemi, the private secretary.

“These are the individuals permitted to be present when we are conducting the nation’s business. Unless specifically summoned, do not attend,” emphasized the president.

Tinubu instructed George Akume, the secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), and Folashade Yemi-Esan, the head of service of the federation, to ensure strict compliance with this directive.

The weekly FEC meeting, presided over by the president, is typically attended by cabinet members and his key aides. Previously scheduled for Wednesdays, the FEC meeting now convenes every Monday.
