Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting will not take place today Wednesday, September 4, 2019.
This is due to the fact that all the memos earlier submitted to the Council for consideration have been returned to the various Ministries. This action will allow Ministers recently sworn in have their inputs in the memos sent by their predecessors in office.
Similarly, the period is to enable Ministers, who are still taking briefs from bureaucrats in the Ministries and familiarising 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 2020 budget estimates.
