NEWS IN PICTURE: Buhari presides over Federal Executive Council meeting
President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday presided over the Federal Executive Council meeting in the Council Chambers at the State House, Abuja.
As at the time of filing this report, details of the meeting are sketchy as it is still on-going.
However, there are indications that issues on how to move the country forward from the current economic situation would be on the front burner.
The proposed sales of some national assets the proceeds of which is to be ploughed back to the economy could also be deliberated upon at the meeting.
Eminent Nigerians like Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki and a host of others had called on the Federal Government to sell off some dormant but huge capital generating investments as a panacea to tackling the current economic challenge facing the country.
