These are what FEC will discuss, Wednesday, Oct, 30

FEC resumes contract awards after one week break.



The agenda for the Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday will as usual feature mostly  award of contracts with four of the seven items slated for discussion bordering on deliberations for contract reviews and awards for different projects.

President Goodluck Jonathan, who, on Tuesday, returned to the country from Sierra Leone where he travelled for his conferment of the country’s highest National Honour, would preside over the meeting.

Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, is expected to table a memo requesting the Council’s approval for a hike in the contract prices for the supply of foodstuff and cooking gas for the country’s prisoners.

The Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah, is expected to also present a memo for members to discuss the contract for the augmentation cost of the pre-post contract consultancy services for the improvement of power supply to the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, MMIA, Ikeja.

In the same vein, Minister of Federal Capital, FCT, Bala Mohammed, would seek members approval for the revised contract sum for the construction of one block of nine-storey Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, headquarters complex in Abuja.

Mr. Bala would also solicit the approval of members of the Council for the award of the contract of the Phase 1 for the construction and equipping of a 220.bed Gwarimpa District General Hospital, Abuja, while Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu, would present a memo for approval for the Counterfeit Medical Products, Fake Drugs and Unwholesome Processed Food (Prohibition and Control Bill) 2012.

Mr. Onyebuchi would also present the report of the 55th National Council on Health meeting held in Abuja last July, while President Jonathan would present the report of the recent agreements signed between the Federal Government and his counterpart from the Russian Federation and Nigeria on the Nuclear Power Development in Nigeria.
