Garba Shehu, presidential aide, says President Muhammadu Buhari is prepared to hand over power.
The presidency was reacting to a report that Buhari was not planning to hand over power to Bola Tinubu, the president-elect.
In a statement on Friday, Shehu wondered how Buhari would campaign for Tinubu and not hand over power when his tenure expires.
“How can you vigorously campaign for somebody, vote for him and then say you won’t hand over to him? This beggars belief,” he said.
“The government is already in the transition phase. The Transition Committee made up of representatives of the outgoing administration and the incoming one is meeting on an almost daily basis planning the handover to the Tinubu/Shettima administration.
“Thirteen committees as offshoots of the main committee, some, to arrange military drills and pulling out of President Buhari, are either all at work or soon to be. So far, everything is going very well and there is no indication of any hitches.
“As for the President, the Daura community has begun their preparations to receive their son back after the successful administration of the country for two terms of eight years.
