The Kebbi State Transition Committee has said that it has finalized its preparation for the smooth handing over power to the state's governor-elect, Nasir Idris, Kauran Gwandu, on May 29.

This was made known by the committee chairman, Babale Umar Yauri.

As contained in a statement by Yahaya Sarki, spokesperson to governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, on Saturday, special prayers have been held on Friday in mosques beseeching God for His blessings and peaceful handing over of power in the state and nationwide.
