The meeting comes 92 days after his official inauguration as Nigeria’s 16th president on May 29, 2023.

The meeting is taking place on the heels of the recent swearing-in of 45 ministers as members of Tinubu’s cabinet and is being attended by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), George Akume, and National Security Adviser (NSA), Nuhu Ribadu, among others.

The FEC meeting serves as a platform for the president to share his plans and receive expert advice and diverse perspectives from his cabinet members.

The president is expected to use the inaugural FEC meeting to set the agenda for his administration and to outline his priorities for the country in terms of policy direction and approach to various challenges facing the nation.
