To ensure a itch-free transition of power, president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Thursday named a 14-member transition committee ahead of his swearing in as the next leader of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The members will join the team earlier announced by the Secretary to the Government of Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha.

In a letter to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, Tinubu, who is still away on vacation to recover from the exhausting presidential election, named Senator Abubakar Kyari, the Deputy National Chairman (North) of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the Committee’s Coordinator and Director of Finance and Budget.

Tinubu had forwarded the names of Kebbi State Governor, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu, and one-time Lagos State Commissioner for Finance, Wale Edun, as his representatives.

Other members of the committee are Samira Saddik (Children’s Day), Abuh Andrew Abuh (Accommodation), Dr Danladi Bako (Inaugural Lecture), Hajiya Hadiza Kabir (Transportation and Logistics), Donald Wokoma (Protocol and Invitation), Bishop Adegbite (Church Service), and Imam Faud (Jumat Service).

Additionally, Col. Abdulazeez Yar’Adua, the younger brother of the late Nigerian President, Alhaji Umaru Yar’Adua, will lead the ceremonial parade and security.

The pre-inauguration dinner and gala night will be organized by Mrs. Zainab Buba-Marwa, the wife of the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, General Buba Marwa.

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, declared Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the candidate of Nigeria’s ruling party, APC, as the winner of Saturday, February 25 presidential election.

Mr Tinubu defeated 17 other candidates who took part in the poll. He received a total of 8,794,726 votes, the highest of all the candidates, meeting the first constitutional requirement to be declared the winner.

He also got over 25 per cent of the votes cast in 30 states, more than the 24 states constitutionally required.
