President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday disclosed that he would expand the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
Speaking at the National Executive Committee meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Buhari described his cabinet as compressed.

Today I attended a Meeting of the National Executive Committee of our party, the All Progressives Congress.

He said the FEC would be expanded to bring in more supporters at federal level, with fresh ideas to be injected into the government.
At present, President Buhari has 36 ministers each from all the states of the federation, but he regretted that he had not re-constituted the boards of parastatals as promised in 2015.

We will expand the Federal Executive Council to bring in more people and fresh ideas, for the ultimate benefit of the people of Nigeria.

While noting that this was due to many reasons, he reminded the party’s leaders that he had given instructions since October 2015 for this exercise to start.
He explained that there had been inordinate delays through several committees in an attempt to get the balance right and to make sure all parts of the country were equitably represented.

The APC is proud of our achievements in the last 2 years: the fight against Boko Haram, Agric Revolution, Improved Power, Peace in the Delta

The president said he was keenly aware that his supporters were very eager for these appointments to be announced.
He assured that “By the Grace of God, these appointments will be announced soon. Especially now that the economy is improving, we will have the resources to cater for the appointees.”

I said last year that we would shortly reconstitute the Boards of Parastatals. I regret the fact that we’ve not done so, for many reasons.

I know that our supporters are also very eager for these Board appointments to be announced. By God’s grace they will be announced soon.
