President Muhammadu Buhari presided over the Federal Executive Council Meeting (FEC) at state house, Abuja, on 21st Dec 2015.
The emergency meeting of the Federal Executive Council was earlier scheduled to hold on Friday.
President Buhari, however, at the last minute postponed the meeting within given reasons till Monday, 21st December, 2015.
The meeting is expected to consider and approve the 2016 Budget to enable the executive arm of government to forward same to the legislature.
Buhari is expected to present the budget to a joint session of the National Assembly on Tuesday.
When asked on Thursday whether the President will submit the budget personally to the National Assembly or send it through a minister as was done in the recent past, the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udo Udoma, said the details would be made public later.
The FEC had at its last meeting approved the Medium Term Expenditure Framework which was forwarded to the National Assembly.
