I have a question about the usage of the verb "administer" in this news article:
In remarks shortly after her leadership was affirmed, May said her priorities will be to administer Britain's exit from the European Union, a move approved by voters last month, to unite the country and to create a "strong, new, positive vision for the future," not just for the privileged few, but for everyone.
According to dictionaries, one could:
--administer an organization
--administer a fund
--administer an examination
--administer an oath
But, the phrase "administer Britain's exit from the European Union" in the new article, does not fit dictionary definitions, as "Britain's exit" is neither an organization, nor a fund, nor an exam, nor an oath.
So, is it an poor usage of "administer" in the news article?
