Meanwhile, the National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Monguno (retd.), resurfaced at the meeting which also had the Chief of Staff to the President, Mr Abba Kyari in attendance.
Mungono, on entering the council chambers, however, first sat two seats away from Kyari. But, he later moved closer to Kyari, after the the later beckoned on him to take his normal seat, leaving only one seat in between them.
The seat in between the two is for the Ag. Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs Folasade Yemi-Esan.
Recall that Mungono did not attend last week’s FEC meeting, days after a memo he wrote complaining that Kyari interfered with security decisions, was leaked online.
The NSA was also absent at Monday security meeting which Buhari had Service chiefs and the Inspector-General of Police in the State House, Abuja.
Monguno was on Monday appointed co-chair of the National Humanitarian Coordination Committee (NHCC).
