The Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting will not take place as scheduled on Wednesday, September 4, 2019.
According to Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on media and publicity, ‘this
is due to the fact that all the memos earlier submitted to the Council
for consideration have been returned to the various Ministries. This
action will allow Ministers who were recently sworn in have their inputs
in the memos sent by their predecessors in office’.
Similarly, the period is to enable the Ministers, who are still
taking briefs from bureaucrats in the Ministries and familiarizing
themselves with their work space, have more time to contribute to
discussions at the meeting.
They will also utilize the period of the break to work towards the
early preparation and submission of the 2020 budget estimates.
