The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has announced that it has started discussions with the Ethiopian government about the contentious issue of a recent visa ban on Nigeria in an effort to get the new policy reversed.
Hadi Sirika, the minister of aviation, announced this during the FEC’s weekly briefing, although he also highlighted that the restriction has no bearing on the two countries’ agreement on Nigeria Air.
The adoption of a revised national policy on labor migration, which aims to protect the dignity of immigrant workers in the country, and the ratification of International Labor Organization Convention 181, which aims to permit the operation of private employment agencies and ensure that people’s protection and rights are fully respected, were also approved by the council today.
The Nigeria Police Trust Fund has received approval from the Federal Executive Council to enter into a contract for the supply of vehicles and insurance coverage for a number of other vehicles, totaling N4,541,829,704 billion.
The fleet consists of 44 Toyota Camrys, eight Toyota Prado 2021 models, and eight Land Cruisers. The cost of the vehicles used for tactical operations is 4.5 billion naira.
The FEC also approved MTN’s acquisition of the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway project, which will cost more than 202.8 billion naira and be built under the road infrastructure tax credit program.
This came after the council today received a memo from the Ministry of Works and Housing.
Additionally, Babatunde Fashola, the Minister of Works and Housing, informed reporters at the State House that it was in accordance with Executive Order 7, which the President issued in January 2019.
