“By the time we are ready, then we will interface with their own committee.
“Whatever clarification they need to know from our own briefs, we provide those clarifications and then bring them at the same page with us.’’
The meeting was presided over by Vice President Namadi Sambo, and was attended by the Attorney-General of the Federation, Mr Mohammed Adoke.
Others at the meeting were the Ministers of Police Affairs and Transport, Jelil Adesiyan, and Idris Umar, respectively as well as the Director-General of NAFDAC, Dr Paul Orhii.
Senator Anyim said that the committee would collect handover briefs from the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), analyse them and prepare the president’s handover notes before May 29.

“After we have collected our own briefs from the ministries, then we put it together and then we interface with the other committee so that whatever clarifications they want, whatever questions they have, we will be able to address them,’’ he said
