May 25, (THEWILL) – Ahead of the May 29 inauguration, President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, handed over transition documents to the incoming President of Nigeria, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
THEWILL reports that the handover of the transition documents followed Executive Order 14, which mandates the transition council to issue handover notes containing, amongst other things, proposed policy direction for the incoming administration.
The files, which contain three key documents, comprise briefing notes (on each of the nine priority areas covering key sectors), a compendium (which captures the priority programmes and projects implemented by his administration) and a Policy Status update were also handed to the President-elect.
These documents were given to Tinubu at the State House Conference Center in Abuja, after he and his Vice President-elect, Kashim Shettima, were conferred with the National Honours of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic (GCFR) and Grand Commander of the Order of Niger (GCON).
The President also handed over the baton of service to the President-elect, indicating that government is a continuum.
The ceremony is the first in a series of events lined up for the May 29 inauguration.
