The House of Representatives has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to publish the handover notes of former President Goodluck Jonathan in the official gazette of the federation.
The resolution,Tuesday, at resumption of plenary after a recess, followed a motion by Uzom Nkem-Abonta who observed that only officials of the presidency have access to the document at the moment.
Mr. Abonta however noted that “some extant laws may place restrictions on the publication of the document” even though it is a public document.
He stated, “Handover note would expectedly have captured the activities, projects, programmes achievements and constriants of thr last administration, including counsel to the new administration on the way forward.”
Mr. Abonta said the publication would help the legislators, especially new members, and members of the public have authentic information about the state of the nation and monitor the activities of the government.
