Nigeria's Jonathan cancels cabinet meeting

Nigeria's Acting President Goodluck Jonathan postponed a weekly cabinet meeting on Wednesday, hours after President Umaru Yar'Adua returned from Saudi Arabia, summoning ministers instead to a special briefing.

"The acting president has directed me to announce that this (weekly cabinet) meeting is hereby postponed. A special meeting with the acting president is scheduled to be held by 2 pm (1300 GMT)," Mahmud Yayale Ahmed, secretary to the federal government, told ministers waiting in the presidency.

"Attendance is mandatory," said Yayale, whose job is to co-ordinate between ministries and the presidency.
