Supreme Court Asked To Dismiss Atiku’s Case Against Tinubu

Atiku Accuses Tinubu Of Violating Constitution For Failing To Convene FEC Meeting

by Victor Ndubuisi

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate for 2023, has accused President Bola Tinubu of breaking the 1999 Constitution by failing to hold a Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting since August.

According to, Tinubu has not called the FEC meeting 44 days after the initial cabinet session on August 28 at the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

However, 44 days after his inauguration, the President’s refusal to preside over any FEC meeting has raised concerns about his ability to lead the country.

In a statement issued on Thursday, a media adviser to the PDP candidate, Phrank Shaibu, said President Tinubu is violating the law by presiding over only one FEC meeting since he inaugurated his cabinet.


According to Atiku’s spokesman, Tinubu is violating Section 148(2) of the 1999 Constitution, and that having presided over only one FEC meeting shows Tinubu is not equipped for government.

According to Shaibu, the cabinet may not hold regular FEC sessions because “they are clueless” and have “nothing to discuss.”

He said: “Tinubu is obviously not ready for governance. After appointing 48 ministers – the highest in history – he has decided not to be meeting with them.

“This contravenes Section 148(2) of the 1999 constitution, which expressly provides that the president shall hold regular meetings with the vice-president and ministers for the purposes of determining domestic and foreign policies of the government.

“It is bad enough that a man who claimed he would hit the ground running from day one took over 60 days to name all his ministers and took 84 days to inaugurate them. Even now, he has held only one cabinet meeting since the inauguration of the cabinet.

“For a man who has been gallivanting all over the place purportedly in search of foreign investors, it is laughable that he cannot even meet with his own team at home.”
