Pending Issues Lead To Federal Executive Council Meeting Extension
There seems to be so much on the table of members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) and they need to sort them out before the week ends.
Christmas is around the corner and not reaching an agreement on some pending issues may mean it will extend till next year.
To resolve the issues, the Council decided to extend its extra-ordinary meeting till Thursday.
A spokesman for President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr Garba Shehu, says the extra-ordinary meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, will continue on Thursday.
According to him, the Federal Government plans to make Nigerians happy by providing tangible and meaningful projects to uplift their quality of life.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the meeting started after President Buhari had sworn-in the remaining seven permanent Secretaries, out of the 22 appointed earlier in the year.
The inauguration had the cabinet members and serving permanent secretaries as well as some guests of the new officials in attendance.
The President did not deliver any inauguration address after the signing of the inauguration register as the FEC meeting progressed afterwards.
Those sworn in are: Mr Mustapha Suleiman (Kano); Mr Adekunle Adeyemi (Oyo); Mrs Comfort Ekaro (Rivers) Mr Adebayo Akpata (Ekiti).
Others are Dr Abdulkadir Muazu(Kaduna); Mr Marcelinus Osuji(Imo) and Mr Bitrus Nabasu (Plateau).
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that 15 of the newly appointed permanent Secretaries had taken their oath of office in August.
