Buhari Inaugurates 19-Member Transition Committee by Nobody: 4:09pm On Apr 29, 2015
President elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, Wednesday inaugurated the much awaited transition committee with a warning to members not be on a fault finding mission, but to study the hand over notes and advise him on how to avoid the mistakes of the past.

The 19 -member committee headed by a retired Permanent Secretary and elder statesman, Alhaji Ahmed Joda has as members, the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun,, Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi and former Abia State governor, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, who will serve as the Vice Chairman.

Other members are – former Kaduna State governor, Brig. Gen, Lawal Ja’afaru Isah, former Peoples Democratic Party National Chairman, Chief Audu Ogbeh, former Petroleum Resources Minister, Prof. Tam David West and former Chairman of the National Population Commission, Chief Festus Odimegwu.

Also included are – National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Director of Organisation of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Boss Mustapha as well as Dr. Doyin Salami, Adamu Adamu, Chief Wale Edun, Mrs. Bola Adesola, Mrs. Nike Aboderin, Senator Ahmadu Serika, Alhaji Abubakar Malami, Mohammed Hayatudeen and Barrister Solomon Dalung.

Speaking while inaugurating the committee, Buhari told them to bear in mind that they were not in a fault finding mission, but to go for the facts as what has been done in the past cannot be undone,

“I thank you all collectively and individually for accepting to serve on this committee at a very short notice. The change from one government to another always involves complicated operational challenges and we all know that government is a continuum.
“But the incoming government needs to know where the previous government stopped so that it can know where to continue. Luckily, you are all outstanding men and women of competence and experience in different fields.

“This assignment, onerous though, it is well within your ability to accomplish. You are enquired to assess the information provided to you and advise me on its quality and accuracy,” the President-elect told the committee members.

Great


"... terms of reference of the committee includes:
1. to develop a clear framework for liaison with the out-going Administration for purposes of a smooth hand-over
2. take-over shocked shocked shocked
3. receive hand-over documents from Ministries, Departments and Agencies shocked
4. itemise the most important or most urgent issues confronting the in-coming government" cool

With point two, it is safe to say that "jonathan's government is now going sef". shocked

Anyway, for the Information dept of the outgoing government,will Reuben Abati PhD and Doyin Okupe PhD handover too? undecided

A disagreement has broken out between the transition committees of President Goodluck Jonathan and General Muhammadu Buhari as the president accused the Buhari team of acting like a parallel government and trying to stampede the Jonathan administration out of office.

Finally... Nice team. But what role will Chairman Oyegun serve on the committee? His presence on the committee doesn't make sense to me. Why is GMB leaving the VP elect lounging instead of deploying him to Chair this committee?

the committee is also saddled with reviewing and making preliminary assessment of the balance sheet of government with particular emphasis on the status of assets and liabilities of government; cash flow position of the government; quantum of public domestic and external debt of government and their deployment; government’s out-standing contractual obligations and its ability to meet such obligations and the status of implementation of capital projects.

Looking at this extracted part of the committee's term of reference, it's very obvious why the Jonathan Administration is not comfortable with the terms of reference. They are scared all of a sudden that the committee is about to find out the true financial position of the federal government. And again, the committees findings will prevent any last minute perfection of documents or cover up. It's really game over for the GEJ government.

Festus Odimegwu must have done something fantastic to have ingratiated himself to the Buhari Campaign Organization hence his nomination

The fact that he even lambasted Jonathan administration 2weeks before the election made me feel he knows how sure the chances of Gen Buhari was at the polls hence his all out attack against Jonathan

Now his calculations has paid off..........

I know that people will come with loads of negative comments and complaints but pls, lets allow this to work. Take into consideration that, the committee is not a political appointment.
