Speaking at the first interface between the PTC and the media since its inauguration by Buhari, Mustapha said “After the declaration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the President-elect, the PTC requested him to nominate his representatives on the council as provided in the Executive Order. The President-elect nominated Atiku Bagudu, the governor of Kebbi State and Chief Olawale Edun.”

He also said to ensure a smooth transition process and make the work more efficient, the PTC broke into three committees, namely Inauguration Committee, Transition Documents Committee and Facilities, Security and Intelligence Committee.

“The President-elect has also been requested to nominate 13 persons that will work across the 13 sub-committees. The sub-committees have been working round the clock to ensure that all preparations are in place for a smooth inauguration ceremony,” he said.
