The Nation reports that this was activated in a letter by Saraki's chief of staff, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, titled “Handover Notes”.
In the letter, Saraki's legislative aides were directed their handover notes within a month. It was also reported that almost all the legislative aides are said to have complied with the directive.
“You are aware that the life of the 8th Senate will terminate in June, 2019, after the inauguration of the 9th Senate. The 9th Senate will benefit from a comprehensive document detailing records of our individual mandates and assignments, major activities undertaken, as well as advice on the consolidating achievements of the office of the President of the 8th Senate.
“You will please therefore prepare brief handover notes that should include the following: Name, rank/designation, basic responsibilities, key achievements under your mandate/responsibilities, assignments you are currently engaged in, any other matter you may wish to place on record that will assist the new Senate,” the letter read.
