PMB-Lai-MohammedThe federal government on Friday postponed an emergency Federal Executive Council meeting summoned to discuss issues related to the 2016 Appropriation Bill.

The emergency FEC meeting was called ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari’s presenting of the bill before a joint National Assembly session on Tuesday.

Explaining the reason for the sudden postponement of the emergency meeting, Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said it was to give members of the cabinet enough time to reconcile figures.

“The meeting was not cancelled. It was postponed till Monday afternoon. The reason is that you know there was a meeting of the National Economic Council yesterday.

“At that meeting, many of the key cabinet members made presentations. There were some fallouts from those presentations that will necessitate going back to the original document that should have been discussed today.

“So we were given time between now and Monday to go and re-jig our figures because when the NEC met, certain issues were thrown up that if they were not resolved, would distort the entire budget proposal.

“So we will all go back, each ministry will do its re-jigging”, said the minister.
