Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting (FEC) will not hold on Wednesday.
According to him, the meeting was canceled by President Muhammadu Buhari, because the Eid-el-KABIR holiday deprived the ministers adequate time to prepare the documents for the meeting.
In a statement issued in Kano on Tuesday, the Minister said: “the two-day public holidays declared for the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations left little or no time to prepare for the weekly meeting.”
It could be recalled that 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 $5.79bn.
However, penultimate week, FEC meeting was canceled because President Buhari was billed to receive the probe report on the allegations against the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, and the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ambassador Ayo Oke.
