President Muhammadu Buhari will today, Monday, preside over the extraordinary Federal Executive Council (FEC).

Naija News understands that the scheduled extraordinary FEC meeting is expected to consider the 2020 budget proposals before its presentation to the National Assembly on Tuesday by 2 pm.

Speaking on why the meeting was earlier postponed the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said the FEC meeting on Monday is expected to cross the ‘t’s and dot the ‘I’s in final preparation for the submission to the two chambers of the National Assembly.

The presentation was meant to have taken place in the third week of September, but was stalled by President Buhari’s participation at the 74th United Nations General Assembly.

Buhari had also on Wednesday proceeded to South Africa on state visit to honor the invitation of South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa, towards discussing welfare of Nigerians, and finding common grounds for building harmonious relations with their hosts.
