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.

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.
