Presidential Transition Council (PTC) has reaffirmed the sanctity of the May 29 handover date for the incoming administration, stating that it had perfected arrangements for a hitch-free exercise.
Meanwhile, the refurbishment of offices for the President and Vice President-elect had been completed, same with facilities at the Defence House.
Also, personnel of the Department of State Services (DSS) and Nigeria Police Force (NPF) have been deployed to the elected two top-most citizens waiting to be sworn in, just as protocol officers had been assigned to them from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and National Intelligence Agency.
Secretary to Government of the Federation and Chairman of the PTC, Boss Mustapha, who made the disclosures yesterday in Abuja, said despite threats from some quarters, there would be formal handover on that day, irrespective of stages of litigations in deference to constitutional requirements.
He noted that the court processes would continue even after inauguration until final determination by the Supreme Court, adding that President Buhari would not spend an extra day in office.
