He said, “Today, we submitted about 800 pages of the report to Mr President, it is now his property and I believe in due course, he will begin to act on it. On the report that the submission of the report delayed political appointments, he said. “One of the terms of references for our committee is to receive the handover note of President Jonathan and this, we did not receive until about weeks after our inauguration. We received the handover note on the 25th of May and that report was about 18,000 pages and it took time to even sort them out and to make sense from them, read them, analyze them and come up with recommendations.
“Political appointments is entirely at the prerogative of the President . He will go through our report and understand our recommendations. I think he deserves a little bit more time”.
Noting that it was not an ordinary transfer of government from one President to the other, Joda said, “In this country, we have never witnessed this kind of transition from one political party to another; the political party in opposition won the election.
“Previous transition from one president to the other did not require long process like this . I think this is part of the evolution of democracy. The country has to be a little bit more patient, it cannot be with immediate effect”, he added.
