Sources said the delay is due to the inability of the team members to secure their visa at the Saudi Arabian embassy.

The FEC constituted the team on Wednesday to travel to Saudi Arabia in order to obtain a first-hand assessment of the ailing President which has been a subject of controversy.

It is regarded as the first concrete step taken by the FEC to ascertain the ailing ruler’s health status, nearly three months since he left the country to seek medical attention in Jeddah.

Sources at the Saudi Embassy told Weekly Trust yesterday that the embassy is yet to receive application from any of the ministers for the trip.

The sources said “even if the applications are to come in now (Friday), it would be difficult for the embassy to process them now.”

Efforts to talk to some of the ministers in the committee through the phone failed.

Members of the committee include Minister of Health Prof. Babatunde Osotimehin, Minister of Agriculture Dr Abba Sayyadi Ruma, Minister of Foreign Affairs Chief Ojo Maduekwe, Minister of Petroleum Dr Rilwanu Lukman, Attorney General and Minister of Justice Prince Adetokunbo Kayode (SAN), as well as Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Alhaji Mahmud Yayale Ahmed.
