 Muhammadu Buhari

Nigeria’s number one man, President Muhammadu Buhari is currently having his last Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

The President is wrapping up his administration activities with a valedictory Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting which he is presiding over, may culminate in the dissolution of the cabinet.

But before the Cabinet stands dissolved, members of the Cabinet will put finishing touches, cross the t’s and dot the i’s to a number of documents as well as treat outstanding memoranda from the various government Ministries, Departments and Agencies.

Buhari is billed to hand over the baton of leadership to a successor on Monday, at the Eagle Square Abuja.

Prior to now, the FEC had been awarding contracts and effecting cost augmentations for contracts to the tune of billions of naira.

Before the valedictory session which was preceded by an exchange of banters among cabinet members, Wednesday, President Buhari performed the swearing-in of seven Federal Commissioners of the Revenue Mobilisation, Fiscal and Allocation Commission (RMFC).

Among those sworn in by the President ahead of the valedictory session currently ongoing were Peter Okpara (Imo), Senator Ayogu Eze (Enugu), Kolade Abimbola (Oyo), Rekiya Ayuba-Haruna (Kebbi), Hauwa Aliyu (Jigawa), Ismaila Agaka (Kwara), and Amb Ayuba Ngako representing the FCT.

Before breaking into a closed-door session, the FEC received the key highlights of the report of the Health Reform Committee chaired by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.

The Committee was put in place to develop a roadmap to achieving Universal Health Coverage in the country.

Among its recommendations include improving funding of the health sector above 10 percent.
