President Muhammodu Buhari has postponed the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting to Thursday to allow for proper deliberation on 2018 budget.
According to the presidency’s official Twitter account, (@NGRPresident), the postponement is due to final arrangements being made to the 2018 Appropriation Bill.
“Federal Executive Council (FEC) Meeting will hold tomorrow, Thursday Oct 26. Agenda is #Budget2018, which is currently being finalized.”
The meeting is expected to be presided by President Muhammadu Buhari who arrived from a working visit to Niger.
The Minister of Budget and Planning, Udo Udoma, had in August announced that the 2018 budget estimates will be submitted to the National Assembly for consideration at the end of October.
