The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that President Goodluck Jonathan has not prepared his handover notes.

The APC also revealed that the transition committee set up by President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari is yet to meet Jonathan’s.

The revelations were made on Thursday, May 7, 2015, by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed via a statement.

The statement reads in part:

“How does he expect us to plan when the Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government has bluntly refused to cooperate with us in ensuring a successful transition? As we write, the transition committee of the Federal Government has yet to hold a single meeting with our own transition committee, neither have they given us a line of handover note.”

‘’As a matter of fact, the Jonathan administration has said the handover notes will not be ready until the third week of May, meaning just a week before the handover.”

“What time then do we have to scrutinise the handover notes? How can we plan when we don’t even know which projects they have and which ones they have completed and which ones are outstanding? How can we plan when we don’t even know how many barrels of oil are sold per day?”

“Is it part of their transition mode that President Jonathan has been engaged in a rash of feverish last-minute appointments that, though may not have breached any known law, are patently in bad faith, morally repugnant and indecorous.”

“They say they are in office until May 29, but are appointments the only function of a government? Are there no problems crying for attention, such as the intractable fuel scarcity, the worsening power situation, the grounded economy and the missing Chibok girls?”

Jonathan is set to handover to Buhari on Friday, May 29, 2015.
