Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said the meeting will not hold because the Eid-el-KABIR holiday deprived the ministers’ adequate time to prepare the documents for the meeting.

In a statement issued in Kano on Tuesday, the Minister said the two-day public holidays declared for the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations left little or no time to prepare for the weekly meeting.

Recall that last week when the meeting held, the Federal Government approved the Mambilla hydro project that will be handled by a consortium of Chinese companies at a cost of $5.79billion.

Source at the presidency said that the minister’s explanation became necessary in order not to give room to rumour mongers to spread falsehood.
