The weekly Federal Executive Council meeting which holds every Wednesday will not hold this week, the Federal Government has announced.
The announcement was made by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed. He said that the meeting will not hold due to inadequate time to prepare the documents for the meeting.
In a statement issued in Kano on Tuesday and made available to newsmen by the Special Assistant to the minister, Segun Adeyemi, Mohammed explained that the two-day public holidays declared for the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations left little or no time to prepare for the weekly meeting.
The development is coming on the heels of the alleged report at the weekend that President Muhammadu Buhari will leave Nigeria on Monday for the United States of America.
The report was however refuted by the Federal Government, which insisted that the President is very much around.
Meanwhile, last week FEC meeting was presided over by Buhari after that of the preceding week was cancelled.
Speculations continue to be rife that the President is still not fit enough to face the rigours of the office.
