President Muhammadu Buhari is currently presiding over the seventh virtual meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) holding inside the Council Chambers of the State House, Abuja.
The Ministers at the Council Chambers include those of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammmed, Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed; Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, Aviation, Hadi Sirika, Justice, Abubakar Malami, Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio, Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, Special Duties, George Akume, Education, Adamu Adamu and Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Zubairu Dada.
Other Ministers are participating from their respective offices in Abuja.
After the national anthem, a minute silence was observed in honour of former Minister of Sports and Youth Development and former member of the National Working Committee, who served as Vice Chairman, North West, late Inuwa Abdulkadir, who died on Monday.
President Buhari has earlier in a statement said that Abdulkadir’s humility, maturity and penchant for facilitating reconciliation among members will be sorely missed at a time the All Progressives Congress (APC) is rebuilding and repositioning to deliver on its promises.
