President Muhammadu Buhari and ministers are right now holding a meeting of the Federal Executive Council.

It is a virtual meeting, held in compliance with the COVID -19 safety protocols.

It is the sixth of such sessions since the pandemic broke out. The Nigerian Government started introducing safety measures since March.

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha; Chief of Staff to the President, Prof Ibrahim Gambari; and the National Security Adviser, Maj. Gen. Babagana Monguno (retd.), are attending the meeting.

About seven ministers with memos to present are at the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, for the meeting.

They include the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Abubakar Malami; Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed; Minister of Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fasola; Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed; Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika; Minister of Water Resources, Engr. Suleiman Adamu; and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Muhammed Bello.

Details of discussions at the closed-door meeting will be out later in the day.
