The Presidency has said that the preparation for handover of power to the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Vice President-elect, Kashim Ibrahim Shettima is currently in top gear with all the handover committees working round the clock for the programme.
“The Transition Committee, made up of representatives of the outgoing administration and the incoming one, is meeting on an almost daily basis planning the handover to the Tinubu/Shettima administration.”
In a statement today, March 24 reacting to news making the rounds that President Muhammadu Buhari will not hand over to Tinubu on May 29, a Presidential spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu dismissed the news as fake.
Garba Shehu asked: “how can you vigorously campaign for somebody, vote for him and then say you won’t hand over to him? This beggars belief.”
According to him, thirteen committees as offshoots of the main committee, some, to arrange military drills and pulling out of President Buhari, are either all at work or soon to be.
“So far, everything is going very well and there is no indication of any hitches.”
Garba Shehu hinted that already the Daura community has begun their preparations to receive their son, President Buhari back, after the successful administration of the country for two terms of eight years.
“He, for his part, is eager to return home to enjoy his retirement.”
The Presidential spokesman took Sahara Reporters which carried the “fake news” about the position of the President, to the cleaner, saying: “the situation of the Sahara Reporters is pretty pathetic since their ownership is politically partisan in today’s politics; in fact, a loser in the presidential election.
“Instead of talking about issues, they repeatedly sell lies in the hope that people believe them as truth.”
