President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, handed over the transition documents to the President-elect Bola Tinubu, in Abuja.
Buhari also handed the baton of service alongside the documents at the investiture of the National Honour of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic on Tinubu and Grand Commander of the Order of the Niger on Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima at the State House Banquet Hall, Abuja.
This is in line with Executive Order 14 which mandates that the transition council issues handover notes containing, amongst other things, proposed policy direction for the incoming administration.
Tinubu said he will not disappoint the trust conferred upon him by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), and millions of Nigerians.
He also affirmed that he understands the magnitude of the honour conferred upon him and the corresponding task ahead.
Tinubu made the promise in his acceptance speech after he was conferred with the National Honour of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic at the State House Banquet Hall, Abuja.
“You (Buhari) have charted the course and I shall not disappoint you,” he said.
Thursday’s conferment makes Tinubu the 16th person to hold the GCFR Honour.
