This week’s federal executive council (FEC) meeting has been extended till Thursday.

Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, disclosed this to reporters on Wednesday.

He said the meeting was extended to enable the council deliberate and take decisions on pending issues.

President Muhammadu Buhari presided over the meeting which is considered the longest since he took office in 2015.

Shehu said the federal government had the plan to “make Nigerians happy” by providing tangible and meaningful projects to uplift their quality of life.

Buhari had earlier administered oath of office on the remaining seven permanent secretaries out of the 22 appointed earlier in the year.

The inauguration preceded the council’s meeting and had the cabinet members and serving permanent secretaries as well as some guests of the new officials in attendance.

Those sworn in were: Mustapha Suleiman (Kano); Adekunle Adeyemi (Oyo); Comfort Ekaro (Rivers) and Adebayo Akpata (Ekiti).

Others are Abdulkadir Muazu (Kaduna); Marcelinus Osuji(Imo) and Bitrus Nabasu (Plateau).

Fifteen of the newly appointed permanent secretaries took their oath of office in August.
