JUST IN: Buhari presides over FEC meeting
President Muhammadu Buhari is presiding over the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The President, who returned on Tuesday evening from a two-week trip to London, the United Kingdom, where he attended the Coronation ceremony of King Charles III, will be leading his cabinet in what looks like another long day, considering a huge number of contracts.
The Nation gathered that FEC will be entertaining nothing less than 60 memoranda during the meeting, which is expected to be the last of its kind for the administration as the one scheduled for the last Wednesday for the administration, next week, will be valedictory and not meant for treatment of memoranda.
