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.

Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has called on Nigerians to support the incoming administration of President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Ortom, who spoke on a television show, lamented the security breaches in his state. He was however hopeful that Tinubu’s government would do better in curtailing them.

The governor insisted the situation could have been averted if President Muhammadu Buhari had listened to him, but said he has forgiven Buhari for unprovoked killings across the country, particularly in Benue.

According to him, the country has not had it so good as far as security was concerned under Buhari, but he believes Tinubu’s government will do better.

He said: “We hope the incoming administration will provide succor, help, security for our people, economic development, and peace for our people. We have suffered for eight years. And what we can do is for all of us to support the incoming government.

Good riddance, Buhari: You came, you saw, you failed woefully!

MUHAMMADU Buhari, president of Nigeria since 2015, will leave office on Monday, May 29, after eight disastrous years. The late Chief Bola Ige famously coined the phrase, “good riddance to bad rubbish”. That, truth be told, is the best way to describe the exit of Buhari, his presidency and his government from power.

For the past eight years of Buhari’s administration have been an unmitigated failure; a monumental waste of time, of resources, and of the hopes and aspirations of a nation and a people.

True stewardship is leaving a place better than one found it. But Buhari is leaving Nigeria far worse than he found it in 2015.

On any metric, Nigeria sunk deeper into an abyss under Buhari. Without a doubt, he’s the worst civilian leader Nigeria has, so far, had! No previous civilian president showed such aloofness, such indifference, such arrogance and such utter lack of competence and vision in governing Nigeria. None!

The Oyo State House of Assembly on Wednesday approved a N2bn loan request presented to it by Governor Seyi Makinde.

The House gave its nod at its plenary in Ibadan, the state capital, barely four days to the end of Makinde’s first term in office.

The PUNCH had reported that the facility is meant to facilitate the timely completion of some ongoing critical projects in the state.

The loan, being offered by Fidelity Bank Plc at a concessionary interest rate of 20.5 per cent per annum, is repayable for a period of 36 months.

Makinde had, in a letter forwarded to the House, requested the approval of the parliament to access the loan.

Reading the letter on the floor of the House, the Speaker, Adebo Ogundoyin, quoted the governor as saying that the loan would be repaid from the internally generated revenue account of the state domiciled with Fidelity Bank Plc.

In their unanimous approval, the lawmakers stated that the development of critical infrastructure was pivotal to the socioeconomic growth of any society.
