FEC Meeting Cancelled As Ministers Failed To Prepare Meeting Memo Due To Sallah Holiday – Lai Mohammed

332

The weekly meet­ing of the Fed­eral Executive Council (FEC) will not hold today. The Minister of Infor­mation and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said the meeting would not hold because the Eid-el-Kabir holiday deprived the ministers adequate time to prepare the docu­ments for the meeting.

According to the News Agency of Nige­ria, a statement issued in Kano on Tuesday quoted the Minister as having said that the two-day public holidays (Friday and Monday) declared for the Eid-el-Kabir cel­ebrations left little or no time to prepare for the weekly meeting. Last week when the meeting held, the Fed­eral Government ap­proved the Mambilla hydro project that will be handled by a consor­tium of Chinese com­panies at a cost of $5.79 billion. 

Before last week?s meeting, the one for the penultimate Wednesday did not hold and no rea­son was offered by presi­dency officials. This makes it the sec­ond time FEC meeting would not hold since Buhari returned on Au­gust 19, 2017, after a 103-day medical vaca­tion in London.
