MAKURDI-Former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav, has said President Muhammadu Buhari's inability to attend the weekly Federal Executive Council, FEC, meetings should be a source of concern to all who care for the country.

The meeting did not hold last week with the Presidency citing the Easter break.

Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed however dismissed concerns that Buhari had fallen ill again saying that the president had other matters to attend to and as such instructed Osinbajo to preside over the meeting.

Today's meeting is being presided over by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.

"President Buhari is human like any other person and is liable to fall sick as well".

ABUJA-Governors of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, have restated their loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari, saying his state of health was of no effect to issues of state-craft.

The CLO President, Igho Akeregha, said the President should resign if his health could not sustain the pressure of work, adding that Nigerians would still respect him for his "ardent fight against corruption". The information minister said the President wanted to rest and asked the VP to stand in for him. Now what time does a man who wants to rest indeed have to start working on files?

"I have not chaired every State Executive Council meeting even when I'm in Kaduna because the deputy governor is there".

The Kaduna governor continued: "The governors reinstate their loyalty to Mr President, the vice president and all our leaders of our party will enjoin Nigerians to continue to pray for the improved health of the president".

But All Progressives Congress governors say they are not anxious about Buhari's health yet.

The governor briefed newsmen after the second meeting between the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Working Committee (NWC) and the 24 governors, which was held on Wednesday, April 26 at the party's national headquarters.

On efforts to stabilise the party, the APC governors said they will now be meeting with the party's leadership every month to find a way out of the financial and other crisis bedeviling the party.
