President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
According to TheCable, the meeting which used to hold every Wednesday since 1999, will henceforth hold once in two weeks.
An official who pleaded anonymity said that Buhari has decided that the weekly meetings is surplus to requirement and “FEC will no longer be all about awarding contracts but a serious discussion of policy issues and appraisal of ministerial performance.
“The president believes once he has given you a job, you have to deliver. He was very painstaking in picking the ministers and he is convinced he has picked a very good team, so it is now left for them to deliver the goods with minimal supervision.
“FEC meetings will now be for brainstorming on policies and performance review, not just contracts,” the official said.
Since the appointment of ministers, FEC has been held just once with the only meeting taking place on November 11, the day they were inaugurated.
