President Bola Tinubu on Monday banned certain government officials who are not statutory members of the Federal Executive Council from attending the meetings or being seen when such meetings are ongoing.

The President said government officials and family members are not to attend FEC meetings without invitation.

According to Tinubu, those granted exemption are Hadiza Usman, Special Adviser on Policy Coordination, Bayo Onanuga, Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, Principal Private Secretary and Damilotun Aderemi, Private Secretary.

He added that unless invited by himself, other officials are not to attend FEC meetings.

President Tinubu ordered the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, and the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (HCSF), Folashade Yemi-Esan, to ensure adherence to his fresh directive.

Speaking ahead of the full commencement of the FEC meeting on Monday, Tinubu said: “Last week, I noticed people sneaking in and out of this council. People had access to this place when they should not. That is not acceptable.

“I will announce to you here, people who are supposed to be here.
“Hadiza Usman, Special Adviser on Policy Coordination, Bayo Onanuga, Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, Principal Private Secretary and Damilotun Aderemi, Private Secretary.

“These are the people who are granted the exception to be here when we are conducting the business of the nation. Unless I sent for you, don’t come.

“Unless they are your staff that are included, no one should have access to the FEC meeting, except I have announced their names to you.
“Let me also say that the planning of an event about the government must be well articulated and followed accurately.”
