The Minister of Water Resources, Sulaiman Adamu, has dismissed speculations that the incoming administration of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, will not continue the multi-billion naira projects of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Adamu spoke against the backdrop that Buhari’s administration would continue working until May 29, when Tinubu would be inaugurated into office.
Speaking after yesterday’s Federal Executive Council meeting, the minister said some contracts might not be completed by the Buhari’s administration.
Responding to questions on pending contracts, Adamu said government is a continuum; hence pending contracts would be passed to Tinubu’s administration.
According to Adamu:
“Government must continue to function regardless of elections.
“We do not control the process, but when it is completed, and we are still in office, we are duty-bound to bring these memos to Council for Council to approve. Government is a continuum. There are still a lot of memos.
“I can assure you a lot of contracts will not see the light of day in the next one week or two. And for those, we do not have any option but to let the process continue. And then for the next government to come and continue.”
