Buhari Receives Hands Over Notes


Buhari's trip

President Goodluck Jonathan has formally ‎presented handover notes to his successor, Muhammadu Buhari, ahead of the inauguration of a new government tomorrow.

Jonathan handed over the document which is a the summary of the record of his Administration at a brief ceremony at the Council Chamber of the presidential Villa.

The President also presented to Buhari a copy of the 2014 National Conference Reports.

Speaking at the occasion, he said,  “the handover notes which we now present, contain the governance philosophy, strategies, policies, programmes and activities of my Administration for the period – 2011-2015. Also to be found in the notes are the objectives, targets and implementation strategies, achievements and challenges of our key policies, schemes, initiatives as well as the status of commitments and liabilities of the various MDAs.”

Reacting, Buhari said Jonathan’s telephone call in which he conceded victory at the last Presidential elections changed the course of Nigeria’s political history, as it stabilized the system of multi-party democracy, as well as earned the respect of both Nigerians and world leaders.

He reasoned that Jonathan had a choice, maintaining that he could have truncated the March 28 Presidential election and made the exercise inconclusive, thereby landing the country into a chaos.

The formal inauguration of the incoming president and the vice president will take place tomorrow.
