President Bola Tinubu has called out his son Seyi over his attendance at the weekly federal executive council (FEC) meeting.

Speaking before the commencement of the FEC meeting on Monday at the Presidential Villa, the president said he noticed that some people were sneaking in and out of the council chamber.

He warned that anyone not invited to the meeting should not be granted access.

“Last week I noticed the undue access of people sneaking in and out of this council, including… I saw the photograph of my son, Seyi, sitting behind… That is not acceptable,” Tinubu said.

“I will announce to you those 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 send for you, don’t come.”

Tinubu asked the secretary to the government of the federation (SGF) George Akume, and head of service of the federation Folashade Yemi-Esan to ensure that the directive is complied with.

Seyi was also present at the Supreme Court last week to hear its judgement on the appeals filed by former presidential candidates Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi.
