President Goodluck Jonathan is scheduled to handover reins of government to president-elect, General Buhari 24 hours before the official handing over date, according to the Minister for Information.
Minister of Information, Senator Patricia Akwashiki, made this known to State House correspondents on Wednesday at the end of the Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by Jonathan.
Akwashiki said Jonathan would hand over to Buhari at a dinner on the eve of the May 29 Democracy Day.
She said, “By May 28, the President intends to have the formal handing over done at a dinner so that we can reserve May 29 for the incoming government.
“By May 28, we are expected to have concluded our own government and we are welcoming the incoming government.
“Also you know May 29 is our Democracy Day. So, we have activities lined up all through that week, showcasing all what we have achieved and all other things we do normally on our Democracy Day except that this year is special with the inauguration of our new President that is coming up on May 29.”
