With just one week to the inauguration of the new government, President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday received the interim report of the Transition Committee set up to assist the newly-elected President to transit smoothly to the Presidency.
Chairman of the committee, Ahmed Joda, while making the presentation said the committee received tremendous cooperation from members of the organized private sector, Nigeria’s international development partners as well as stakeholders from across the country.
He said his committee worked hard through four sub- committees to arrive at the interim report, adding however that the report does not have any input from the out-going administration. He was optimistic that the final report of the committee would include the input of the present administration, provided it is made available.
The interim report dealt with issues of good governance namely the executive, legislature and judiciary, finance and economy as well as core sectors like agriculture, oil and gas and solid minerals and other vital sectors.
President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari thanked the committee for doing a thorough job and presenting an interim report within the time allocated to it.
He requested the Joda-led committee to be in readiness to resume work the moment the outgoing government’s handover notes are received.
