This is one of the things that makes me sick in Nigeria system of Governce..you are leaving office and you fell this the right time for you to appoint people to punish the incoming Government….
He is still the Governor till he hands over. Ending well requires doing so much more towards the end of any race. May the next man excel where there is any short comings and also sustain any gains of the Governor.
