For the second time since President Buhari’s return from extended medical leave in London, Nigeria’s weekly cabinet meeting has been cancelled.
According to a BBC report, Information Minister Lai Mohammed said in a statement that yesterday’s meeting could not taking place “due to inadequate time to prepare the documents”.
Mr Mohammed’s statement adds that a two-day public holiday on Friday and Monday to mark the Islamic Eid-el-Kabir celebrations had left little time to prepare for the weekly meeting.
President Buhari led his first cabinet meeting last week since taking leave for an unspecified illness.
His absence sparked numerous protests, including demands that he should resign, as well as calls for more transparency about the president’s condition.
The 74-year-old president has been working from home since his return on 19 August, blaming a rodent infestation for keeping him out of his office.
