Ahmed Joda Submits 800-page Transition Committee Report To Buhari

President Buhari

The Alhaji Ahmed Joda-led Transition Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday submitted an 800-page final report of its findings to President Muhammadu Buhari at an event at the Defence House, Abuja.

The report was prepared from the over 18,000 pages it received from the Goodluck Jonathan administration.

Joda, who briefed State House correspondents after submitting the report, noted that the committee got the cooperation of several groups to arrive at its recommendations.

“We have concluded our assignment which was given to us on the 29th of April,” he said.

“We spent about five weeks going through memorandum, listening to presentations from all over the country and sometimes from Nigerians living in different parts of the world.

“And I must say that we received wonderful cooperation from everybody in Nigeria, the business community, the professional people, the non-governmental organisations, society people.

“Everybody contributed to the success of our work. And today, we submitted about 800 pages of report and recommendations to the President.

“This is now his property and I think in due course he will begin to act on them.”

The transition committee chairman denied that the submission of the report had delayed the action of the president in administration and appointments but said that the president had to wait for the report. He stated that political appointments were at the discretion of the president.
