Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday said it was yet to receive handover notes from the Federal Government.

This is contained in a statement in Abuja by Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party's Publicity Secretary.

According to the statement, transitional committees on both sides are yet to meet.

"As we write, the Transition Committee of the FG has yet to hold a single meeting with our own Transition Committee, neither have they given us a line of handover note.

"As a matter of fact, the Jonathan Administration has said the handover notes will not be ready until the third week of May, meaning just a week before the handover.

"How can we plan when we don't even know how many barrels of oil are sold per day?"

The statement, however, acknowledged that the Inauguration committees on both sides had been having series of meetings.

The statement urged the government to caution its aides on inflammatory statements in order not to overheat the polity.
