The Federal government on Wednesday clarified that the dinner being organised for the president-elect Muhammadu Buhari on May 28 is not meant to be for a formal handover, reiterating that the May 29th handover date remains sacrosanct.
The Minister of Information, Patricia Akwashiki made the clarification on Wednesday, saying that the dinner would still be hosted by Jonathan for Buhari on May 28. She hinted that the president-elect may be honoured with an award during the dinner.
She said that all handover briefs being coordinated by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Anyim Pius Anyim would be ready by May 28.
Commenting on the recent sack of the Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba, Akwashiki said it remained the prerogative of the President to take such decision and he had done what he felt should be done.
