Buhari establishes a presidential transition team

The executive order establishing a transitional committee for the next general elections in Nigeria was signed by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The new executive order, according to him, “establishes a legal basis for the orderly transfer of power from one presidential administration to another.”

Nigerians go the polls on 25 February.

Mr Buhari, 80, is serving his last term in office, as he is constitutionally barred from running again in the elections.

A new president will be sworn in on 29 May.
