I Have Nothing To Do With Your Failure- Jonathan Tells Buhari

By Emma Peters

Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday said that he has nothing to do with President Muhammdau Buhari’s failure in the appointment of ministers early enough to inspire confidence in investors.

Jonathan was reacting to a statement made  by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu on Channels Tv in which he blamed the failure of President Muhammadu Buhari in the appointment of ministers six months after taking over office on the administration of former President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan

A statement signed by Jonathan’s Media Adviser Ikechukwu Eze and titled ‘Garba Shehu’s gaffe on Jonathan’s Handover notes to Buhari’ said that anyone who uses handover notes to justify a President’s indiscretion of not appointing ministers until afterspending six months in power, is either being mischievous or does not reallyunderstand governance processes.

According to him ‘the Jonathan administration has  nothing to do with the failure of Buhari’s government to appoint ministers early enough to inspire confidence in investors because it is obvious that handover notes from a predecessor does not contain the list of ministers for the incoming administration.’  

He also said that ‘those who think like  Garba Shehu that a Government would not function properly if it does not receive handover notes in good time, should be tutelage  that there is no law establishing the process. It is simply a matter of convenience for an outgoing President to develop handover notes to guide his successor understand key issues and hit the ground running.’
