FEC cancels weekly meeting


Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, which was already scheduled to hold Wednesday, was shelved at the last minute.

Although no reason was given for the cancellation, but it was gathered that it might not be unconnected with the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari only just returned from his official trip to Abu Dhabi, late Tuesday.

President Buhari on Sunday embarked on a three-day official visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where he attended the World Future Energy Summit and reengaged Nigeria with the Middle East region.

The President had, while in Abu Dhabi, also signed agreements that would assist Nigeria recover funds laundered to that country.

Officials at the Presidency however said there was no written rule that the meeting would hold every Wednesday or every week, as was the case in previous administration. The cabinet meeting has held for the past two Wednesdays.
