President Buhari is currently virtually participating in the ongoing meeting of the Federal Executive Council from his home town in Daura, Katsina State.
Buhari relocated to the town last Friday on what the Presidency described as a private visit.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, who is currently on isolation because some members of his family tested positive for COVID-19 is also absent at the meeting.
The Permanent Secretary, Ecological Funds Office, Mrs Habiba Lawal, is standing in for him.
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo is presiding from the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
