Breaking: NEC dumps FG’s social investment register, says it lacks credibility

The National Economic Council (NEC) presided over by Vice President Kashim Shettima, has dumped the national social register under Muhammadu Buhari’s administration for lack of credibility.

The decision was part of the outcome of the over five hours meeting by members of the council at the state house on Thursday.
