The Federal Executive Council meeting earlier scheduled for Friday morning has been postponed till Monday, December 21.
Channels TV correspondent reports that most of the ministers had arrived before they were informed about the postponement.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, told newsmen that the postponement was to allow the ministers reflect on some of the corrections made on the 2016 budget proposal during a meeting of the National Economic Council held on Thursday.
“We are being given time between now and Monday to go and rejig our figures because when the National Economic Council met yesterday, certain issues were thrown up which if not resolved will distort the entire budget proposal.
” So we are all going to get back on areas in which each ministry will go and do its own rejigging,” he said.
