While briefing State House correspondents at the end of Federal Executive Council (FEC), meeting at the presidential villa, Abuja on Thursday, the Minister of Budget and Planning, Udoma Udoma, said that the FEC has approved the draft budget estimates for 2018.
According to Premium Times, the minister said the Council will liaise with the National Assembly to determine when the president will submit the draft estimates for the consideration of the two chambers.

Thursday’s council meeting, postponed from Wednesday, was presided by President Muhammadu Buhari.
