Buhari Presides Over FEC Meeting
The Federal Executive Council meeting is underway in Abuja, with President Muhammadu Buhari presiding.
This will be the first FEC that Buhari will be presiding since his return from his medical vacation on August 19, 2017.
The President arrived at the Council Chambers at about 11.am.
Most of the cabinet ministers are in attendance including Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan.
Last week’s FEC meeting was cancelled.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed, said in a statement on Tuesday that the decision was taken due to inadequate time to prepare the documents for the meeting.
“The two-day public holidays declared for the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations left little or no time to prepare for the weekly meeting,” the statement issued in Kano by the minister’s media aide, Segun Adeyemi, read in part.
