Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), says plans are in place to ensure a smooth, peaceful, and formal transfer of power to President-Elect Bola Tinubu on May 29.
He stated this during the Presidential Transition Committee meeting on Tuesday.
Mustapha stated that, despite litigation arising from the presidential elections, President Muhammadu Buhari will not serve another day as President after his term expires.
“President Muhammadu Buhari will not stay an extra day after May 29 to hand over power to whoever INEC has declared the winner.”
“The court processes will continue, and we will do everything possible to ensure that the transition process is not disrupted.”
The federal government has made a statement to that effect.
“The transition process is on track, and all efforts are being made to ensure that it is smooth,” the SGF said. “On May 29, there will be a peaceful, formal transfer of power to the President-Elect.”
