"May 29 remains date for handover of governance from President Jonathan to President-elect Buhari" - Information Minister

The Minister of Information, Senator Patricia Akwashiki, says May 29 remains date for the handover of governance from President Goodluck Jonathan to the President-elect, General Muhammudu Buhari.

Mrs Akwashiki made the clarification on Wednesday at the end of Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, presided over by President Jonathan.

The Minister said May 28 is just for the inaugural dinner and not the date for the transition, stressing that 29 May would remain Nigeria’s “handover and Democracy Day”.

Mrs Akwashiki maintained that “President Jonathan remains the President till 29 May when the President-Elect will take over”.
