President Muhammadu Buhari led-Federal Executive Council on Wednesday assessed the performance on his ministers in the past one year in office.
Briefing reporters after the Council’s meeting, the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, said the meeting reflected on the progress so far, the challenges encountered and the tasks members of the council still have to tackle.
According to him, the Council approved the direct procurement of four-wheel patrol vehicles produced by Nissan for Mines Inspectorate Division of the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development in the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory.
The assessment is coming one year after the cabinet was constituted by President Buhari months after he was sworn in.
The delay had drawn criticisms and had impact on economic activities in the nation, with most investors waiting for the minister’s to be named.
