ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The Presidency has described as pure fiction and blackmail a social media broadcast claiming President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration has budgeted N3bn for members of the transitional committee working on the handover notes to the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.

The Presidency insisted no transitional meeting between both camps has held.


“Buhari at the villa in connection to setting up a transition committee for handing over. At the meeting, Goodluck asked for the list of of APC & the required remuneration.

“Buhari was surprised that Goodluck’s list & corresponding cost was put at N3billion for a job estimated to last only 2. Goodluck then asked why Buhari’s list didn’t show corresponding cost?

“Buhari answered that team was made up of volunteers and their feeding would be by individuals/self even if they have to bring in leftover food from their homes. No word has been heard from presidency since then.
