Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting which is usually presided by President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to be held virtually on Wednesday, May 13.
The ministry of communications and digital economy disclosed that a test run of the equipment for the meeting was carried out by the minister of communications, and digital economy, Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, on Sunday, May 10.
The ministry said and Nigerian communications satellite systems will be providing a digital platform and technical support for the meeting.
The ministry on its Twitter handle confirmed that the virtual FEC meeting will be chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The last FEC meeting was held on March 18, 2020, at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa, Abuja, before the lockdown to contain the spread of the dreaded Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the presidential task force on COVID-19 to pick up COVID-Organics, Madagascar’s self-proclaimed, plant-based “remedy” for coronavirus.
Legit.ng reports that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, broke the news at the daily briefing of the task force, which he heads on Monday, May 11.
He said Madagascar donated some of the products to Nigeria through Guinea-Bissau and arrangements were being made to pick them up.
Mustapha said the president directed that the products be subjected to the validation process after they have been picked up.
It was reported that the government made this known through a circular dated Friday, May 8, channeled to heads of commissions and regulatory bodies in the education sector.
The ministry of education, through the memo, warned the authorities across education levels to dismiss the trending fake news that there has been an order for the reopening of the schools.
