Source: citifmonline. com - The government transition team has denied reports that the handing over notes for the incoming President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo-led administration are not ready.
According to a statement from the government transition team, the spokesperson from Nana Akufo-Addo’s team is on record saying the work of the transition team will start when the incoming administration receives copies of the handing over notes, which are yet been made available to them because they are not ready.

But the government transition team insists that the handing over notes for every ministry are ready and that the process of the transition will begin tomorrow [Wednesday] and the transition team’s second meeting.

“We wish to state that the handing over notes from each Ministry that are to be given to the transition team for the incoming administration are ready, and indeed were prepared before the elections were held on the 7th of December.”

“The second meeting of the transition team after the formal inauguration on Sunday the 11th of December is scheduled to take place on Wednesday the 14th of December at 10.00 am and we look forward to commencing the process of transition in earnest,” the statement guaranteed.

The meeting tomorrow is expected to settle on the committees to be established and the composition of each committee so that the various committees can begin the process of planning the inauguration ceremony, handing over the machinery of the Civil Service including the Ministries, Departments and Agencies, and ensuring the orderly transfer of the official assets and liabilities to the in-coming administration.

As a further assurance, the government transition team has also said that the handing over process will be completed before Nana Akufo-Addo is sworn in as president on January 7.

“We envisage that the process of transition will be completed before the formal handing over to the incoming administration on the 7th of January 2017, however if there are any matters that still need to be addressed the members of the Government’s transition team will be available for further discussions.”

PRESS STATEMENT FROM THE SPOKESPERSON OF THE GOVERNMENT TRANSITION TEAM –
GOVERNMENT’S READINESS TO BEGIN THE PROCESS OF TRANSITION FROM ONE ADMINISTRATION TO THE NEXT


Our attention has been drawn to a media report quoting the spokesperson of the President Elect’s transition team – Mr. Mustapha Hamid where he is reported to have said on Onua FM that the work of the transition team will start when the incoming administration receives copies of the handing over notes, which have not yet been made available to them because they are not ready.

We wish to state that the handing over notes from each Ministry that are to be given to the transition team for the incoming administration are ready, and indeed were prepared before the elections were held on the 7th of December.

The second meeting of the transition team after the formal inauguration on Sunday the 11th of December is scheduled to take place on Wednesday the 14th of December at 10.00 am and we look forward to commencing the process of transition in earnest.

By the provisions of the Presidential Transition Act 2012 (Act 845) the transition team is to make comprehensive practical arrangements to regulate the transfer of political power following a Presidential election, and to do this by forming various sub-committees that will be responsible for different aspects of the process of the transfer of power.

The law provides for the establishment of three specific committees – the inauguration sub-committee, the government machinery sub-committee and the presidency sub-committee and any other committees the transition team considers relevant for the performance of its functions.

We envisage that tomorrow’s meeting will agree on the committees to be established and the composition of each committee so that the various committees can begin their work and get on with the process of planning the inauguration ceremony, handing over the machinery of the Civil Service including the Ministries, Departments and Agencies, and ensuring the orderly transfer of the official assets and liabilities to the in-coming administration.

We envisage that the process of transition will be completed before the formal handing over to the incoming administration on the 7th of January 2017, however if there are any matters that still need to be addressed the members of the Government’s transition team will be available for further discussions.
