This is the fourth consecutive meeting the vice president is presiding over as President Muhammadu Buhari is still on his ‘private visit’ to London.
Osinbajo first took charge of the meeting on October 23, 2019, while Buhari was in Sochi, for the Russia-Africa Economic Summit and he has been presiding of the meeting since the president travelled out of the country later in the month, first to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for the third session of the Future Investment Initiative and then on to London, UK, for a private visit.
The President will be away from Nigeria till November 17.
Cabinet members observed a-minute silence in honour of a former Minister of Petroleum, Prof Tam David-West, who passed on Monday at the age of 83.
