According to a report by Premium Times, the Federal Executive Council (FEC), has approved a memorandum from the Minister of State (Petroleum), Ibe Kachikwu, for the design of a new head office for the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR).
The design for the proposed 12-floor building, according to Mr Kachikwu, will cost N1.4 billion.

Briefing State House correspondents at the end of the meeting of FEC chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr Kachikwu said the government has decided to move the head office building of DPR from Lagos to Abuja.
