The usual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting will not hold on Wednesday, 4th September.
Naija News gathered that the cancellation of the weekly FEC meeting is due to the fact that all the memos earlier submitted to the Council for consideration have been returned to the various Ministries.
This was made known in a statement by the senior special adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu.
Shehu’s statement obtained by Naija News reads as thus; “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.”
