President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari has confirmed claims made by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that the outgoing Goodluck Jonathan administration is withholding valuable information from the incoming one.

The APC has repeatedly accused the Jonathan administration of deliberately frustrating efforts for a peaceful transition.

Buhari gave the confirmation on Thursday, May 21, 2015, while receiving the Interim Report from the 19-man Transition Committee set up by him.

The President-elect further highlighted areas which had not yet been discussed by his team and Jonathan’s.

“The incoming government was misunderstood. It is not that we are preparing for indictment. What we are trying to get is a starting point, where we are exactly going to start from,” Buhari said.

“We have seen the debt profile and the performance of the economy. The question is what can we do about it especially the urgent ones like social security, lack of fuel in the country and fraud. The list is endless,” he added.

Buhari is set to receive the official handover document from Jonathan on Thursday, May 28, before being sworn in on May 29.
