Buhari won’t stay in office later than May 29 – SGF Mustapha


The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha has assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari will not spend an extra day in office at the end of his tenure.

He stated this during the meeting of the Presidential Transition Committee on Tuesday, March 28, 2023.

Mustapha said despite litigations arising from the presidential elections, President Muhammadu Buhari won’t spend one more day as President after the expiration of his tenure.

He said efforts were being put in place to ensure that the transition is not truncated.

According to him: “President Muhammadu Buhari is not spending a day extra after May 29 to hand over power to whoever has been declared by INEC.

“The court processes will continue and we are doing everything to ensure that the transition process is not truncated; the federal government has issued a statement to that effect.

“The transition process is on course and all efforts are being made to ensure that it is smooth and on May 29, there will be a peaceful, formal transfer of power to the President-Elect.”

Following the conclusion of the presidential election in February, Buhari is expected to hand over power to Bola Tinubu, president-elect, on May 29.

On Friday, Garba Shehu, presidential aide, said Buhari will hand over to Tinubu as he is eager to return home to enjoy his retirement.
