President Buhari’s Media aide, Malam Garba Shehu, says the extra-ordinary meeting of the Federal Executive Council, presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, will continue on Thursday.

Shehu, who made this known in Abuja on Wednesday, said the meeting was extended to Thursday to enable the council deliberate and take decisions on pending issues.
According to him, the Federal Government plans to make Nigerians happy by providing tangible and meaningful projects to uplift their quality of life.
