The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said the weekly Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting will not hold today, Wednesday.
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.
He said the meeting will not hold because the holiday denied the ministers adequate time to prepare the documents for the meeting.
FEC meeting held last week was the first to be attended and presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari since April.

Although the president was away in London for over 100 days for medical vacation, he did not attend about four meetings before he travelled including one cancelled.
During the meeting held last week, 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.
