Buhari said the committee represent some of the best Nigeria has. He advised the committee not to over look the essential and said the ‘assignment is onerous though it is well within your ability to accomplish. You are required to assess the information provided to you and advise me on its quality and accuracy.
He added that ‘it is a simple matter but you must have the right information if you are to shape appropriate policy decisions. Needless to repeat that your committee and our government are not on a witch hunt or engage in fault finding.
We want the facts and nothing but the facts, what has been done cannot be undone, our job is to learn from the mistakes of the past in an attempt to avoid similar errors.
The chairman of the transition committee Ahmed Joda said ‘we as your transition committee members are determined to do the best we can within the time that is allowed to accomplish your wishes and to make it possible for you to achieve your vision for our country.’
The terms of reference includes the following:
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
