The President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari says the incoming government of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not become a tool to persecute its predecessors.
Buhari, who said this while inaugurating a 19-member transition committee headed by Mallam Ahmed Joda in Abuja noted that there is a need for the committee to be meticulous and not to overlook the essentials in their engagement with the transition panel representing the outgoing administration.
“It is a simple matter but you must have the right information if you are to shape appropriate policy decisions. Needless to repeat that your committee and our government are not on a witch-hunt or engage in fault-finding. We want the facts and nothing but the facts. What has been done cannot be undone. Our job is to learn from the mistakes of the past in an attempt to avoid similar errors,” he said.
Buhari said the committee’s work is to advise him on the details of the handover note based on their assessment of the situation on ground.
“Your job is to make sure that you do not overlook essentials,” he said.
