“As a government that values due process, it is inevitable for us to prepare the ground for the incoming administration to have a seamless and smooth take-off, in the overall interest of our people,” he said.

“I’m aware that the committee receives returns from ministries, departments and agencies of government through which the entirety of this government has been significantly x-rayed.

“I have no doubt that the report that has just been submitted will provide the needed starting point for the incoming administration to hit the ground running.”
