“Our committee has never said to anybody that there is no cooperation. We have never said that and we are waiting for the reports, until when they come,” he declared.His position was corroborated by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator Pius Anyim, who described the Monday meeting as “fruitful and cordial.”He said there was no contending issue between the two committees as being speculated in some quarters.He said, “The meeting was very, very fruitful, it was very cordial.
“There is certainly no (contending) issue; we are flowing and we have clearer understanding of the working of the two committees.”
He had said,
“We did receive from the incoming government’s transition committee some terms of reference, which we looked at critically and council did agree that Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan remains the current head of government of this country.“The incoming government should avoid creating a parallel government while the government is still on.
“We take exception to some utterances and some of the terms of reference that look as if the current government is being stampeded or intimidated.“Council frowned on most of the statements, most of the provocations and council members are advised to work in line with the terms of reference of the current government.“Council members are also told that the terms of reference as formatted by our transition committee should be strictly complied with.“When the incoming government takes over government, they can come out with their programmes, they can come out with their own agenda, they can decide to come out with policies in the way they feel like.“This government remains resolute to the various programmes and projects it is pursuing and the government will continue to do that until the morning of May 29.“
