Buhari Proves He Is Stronger Than Obasanjo, Sets New Aso Rock Record

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, proved that he is physically and mentally fit for the task ahead, as he presided over the longest meeting of the Federal Executive Council in the history of his administration or any other.



The 76-year-old politician also used the marathon meeting to proof his distractors wrong, ahead of his inauguration on May 29.



Recall, that many of his opponents had said the president was not fit for office and tried to compare his tenure with that of former president Olusegun Obasanjo, who preferred working late night.



Buhari, who just returned from the United Kingdom, UK, after a 10 day private visit, broke all protocols on Wednesday by extending the FEC meeting till late night.



The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the meeting, which started at about 11:00am at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, was still in session till late in the night.



The meeting was scheduled to deliberate on at least not less than 25 memos from Federal Ministries, Departments, and Agencies, MDAs.

The meeting went for break twice, to enable the cabinet members attend to some spiritual obligations and other needs.



Buhari had before the commencement of the Council meeting, inaugurated the Governing Board of the North-East Development Commission, chaired by Gen. Paul Tarfa (retd.).



The commission, which is to see to the rehabilitation of devastated communities in the North-East, caused by Boko Haram insurgency, has an N10bn take-off grant.
