Jonathan Cancels FEC Meeting As Sign Of Respect For Sambo’s Brother

FEC MEETINGThe mid-weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council will not hold today.

The meeting was called off by President Goodluck Jonathan as a sign of respect to Capt. Yusuf Sabo Sambo, the immediate younger brother of Vice President Namadi Sambo.

Yusuf died when he lost control of his BMW X6 and crashed into a tree, with the car bursting into flames on impact, along the Bill Clinton Drive, airport road, Abuja on Sunday.

In a statement by Sam Nwaobasi, the Special Assistant (Media) to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator Pius Anyim, the president said the cancellation is to allow Council members attend the three-day prayers for the deceased taking place in Abuja today.

The statement reads: “His Excellency, Goodluck Ebere Jonathan, GCFR, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, has directed that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) will not meet tomorrow, 30th April, 2014, to enable Council members attend the three day prayer for the late Captain Yusuf Sabo Sambo, the younger brother of the Vice President”.
