Presidency cancels this week’s FEC Meeting


THE Presidency on Tuesday explained that the weekly Wednesday Federal Executive Council, FEC, will not hold this week because of the just concluded Eid-el-fitr celebration.

The Presidency also confirmed that the 2018 Appropriation Bill of N9.1 trillion will be assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari by 12pm on Wednesday.

A statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina explained that the FEC will not hold because the Sallah holiday affected the preparation of the Council memoranda.

Meanwhile, there has not been any explanation from the Presidency as the reason behind the present delay despite the increment from N8.6 trillion to N9.1 trillion by the National Assembly.
