    FEC Approves Full Implementation Of Confab Report
    Channels Television. 
    Updated March 18, 2015
    The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved the final report of the National conference for full implementation.

    Briefing State House Correspondents after the council meeting the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Anyim Pius Anyim, said that council’s decision follows the recommendation by a committee President Goodluck Jonathan set up, which concluded that the report is implementable.

    According to Mr Anyim, this is the first leg of the Jonathan administration’s concrete steps in the implementation of the recommendations and resolutions of the conference.

    He said the recommendations and resolutions that have implications for constitutional amendment should be transmitted to the National Assembly for enactment into law, while resolutions on policy matters by federal and state agencies or local governments which require action should be transmitted to the appropriate quarters for immediate implementation and all that requires action by state governments should be referred to the states for immediate implementation.

    FEC said the National Assembly should work with the state assemblies in bringing the implementation to effect.

    Also approved are contracts for the construction of the Oshegbodo-Oweto Road in Benue State at the cost of N7.9 billion to de-congest traffic on the Abuja-Lokoja Expressway, the Ningi-Fuskamanta Road in Bauchi State at the cost of N7.1 billion and the dualization of the Suleja-Minna Road in Niger State at the sum of N23.6 billion.

    The Minister of Works, Mr Mike Onolememen, said the roads will help improve transportation in Nigeria and oil the wheels of the economy of the states.

    The FEC also approved the procurement and distribution of tricycles by the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) for the Benue North-West Senatorial District at the sum of N472.5 million to alleviate transportation challenges.

    Council also approved the construction of corporate head offices for the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) in Lagos and Abuja. While the construction of the Abuja complex will cost N14.7 billion, the Lagos office building will cost N24.7 billion.

    Council approved that Nigeria should now serve as headquarters of the West African Telecommunications Regulators Assembly having been an active leader in the telecoms business in West Africa.
