The All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned President Goodluck Jonathan not to create problems for President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

The APC also accused Jonathan’s administration of carrying out dubious last minute activities including hasty recruitment and looting of the nation’s resources.

The party made the allegations on Sunday, April 26, 2015, via a statement released by National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed.

The statement reads:

“For example, the National Council on Privatisation, which is headed by the Vice-President, has just approved the financial bid opening for transaction advisers for the privatisation of the three development finance institutions in the country – the Bank of Agriculture, Bank of Industry and Nigeria Commodity Exchange. The question is: What is the rationale for rushing this exercise with just weeks left for this administration?”

“Also, there have been reports, not refuted, of a planned hurried recruitment into the Nigeria Immigration Service, after a previous attempt ended in a national tragedy and the fleecing of innocent job seekers by mindless Federal Government officials.”

“Apart from the fact that this last-minute recruitment is suspect, it is irregular.”

‘’We do not know if this report, as well as others, is true. But if indeed these rushed privatisation and hurried recruitment exercises – in the twilight of the Jonathan administration – are true, they raise serious questions concerning the reasons behind such actions.”

“We are therefore compelled to call on President Jonathan to call his officials to order, lest they engage in actions that can later embarrass his administration.”

Jonathan is set to hand-over to Buhari on Friday, May 29.
