Anxiety in cabinet as
Jonathan shifts FEC. meeting
by four hours. There was anxiety
yesterday among Ministers
following a curious notice
from the Acting President, Dr.
Goodluck Jonathan,shifting
tomorrow’s meeting of the
Federal Executive Council
forward by four hours.
Investigation by The Nation
revealed that the notice
which came from the
Secretary to the Government
of the Federation, Alhaji
Mahmud Yayale Ahmed was

findings, the notice indicated
that the meeting which ought
to start by 10am would now
hold by 2pm .

occasioned by some high-
level meetings that would
precede the FEC session.
But Yayale was not
forthcoming on the nature of

week (Wednesday, March 10,
2010) has been moved to
2pm from the usual 10am.

take stock before swapping

inauguration of 18-man
Presidential Projects
Assessment Committee.

Assessment Exercise has

A Minister, who confirmed
receipt of the notice from the
SGF, said: "It is unusual but it
is better than getting to the
Council Chamber by 10am and
be in suspense for hours.
" I won’t go into the realm of
assumption but I think the
Acting President’s schedule
is a bit tight for that day. Let
us wait and see."
Another cabinet source said:
"I found the shift curious but
I think the notice is a normal
administrative procedure."
